The New York City police are looking for a quick-thinking thief who stole an 86-pound bucket of gold flakes worth nearly $1.6 million off an armored truck in Manhattan.
The unidentified thief swiped the 5-gallon metal bucket off the back of the vehicle on September 29 when a guard briefly went to the truck’s cab, reportedly to retrieve his cellphone.
The incident occurred in broad daylight on West 48th Street in Midtown Manhattan.
The armored truck was making a pickup in front of 48 West 48th street between Fifth and Sixth avenues. The police say the suspect most likely didn’t know what the bucket contained.
