Bank Raids

From the case files of The People and The Daily Mirror

Does crime pay? Well not according to a survey in 2012 carried out by university economists using data held by the British Bankers' Association that estimates the average haul from a bank raid is roughly GBP20K. Raiders can expect to increase that amount if they carry a gun and also reap more rewards by having a larger gang, however, the chances of being caught will increase significantly with each raid carried out.

Bank raids are fascinating. Who raids banks, and why? What do they do with the money if they escape with the loot, and what happens to the third of raiders who fail in their missions? This book takes a look at a number of famous band raids from the past 100 years, and discovers the changes that technology has brought about for the modern-day bank robber as well as delving into the history of bank raids.

From the first bank raid committed in 1865 to the first use of a getaway car in 1911 Bank Raids gives a fascinating insight into the masterminds behind some of the greatest robberies ever committed.
