That following Tuesday, the infamous thief struck again. And from here on in, he had everything planned out.

The previous day, there had been a television broadcast about him. It said that two police officers had found enough information. However, he had thought of a plan to get him around them.

He was going to get captured.

Heputhisplanintoaction at around 6:00 in the evening. He had his gun carefully tucked under his shirt so no one would see it. He was wearing normal business attire- A suit, tie, and khaki pants- and made his way calmly into the bank.

Upon entering, he was stopped by a rather large man.

"Stop right there." the man said, "We have to check your hands for that film that was specified on the television report... Better safe than sorry."

"That's quite alright." The thief said, as he stood forward and presented his hands to the guard. He had been expecting something like this to happen, and therefore didn't wear his gloves.

After a quick check of the hands, the guard let him by. He walked casually up to the counter and said hello to the teller.

Before the teller could reply, he pulled out his gun and shot at her. He then turned around and fired a few shots at the guards and pedestrians. He quickly walked around the counter and took all the money from the cash register.

He walked slowly out the bank door, aiming his gun at anyone who moved, ready to shoot if necessary.

Upon exiting the building, he got in his car and drove off into the night.
