Seemingly coincidence played a role in preventing a bank robbery by digging a tunnel, if rain in Florida exposed digging operations under a street in order to reach the bank in Miami.
The FBI stated that the tunnel, which was being worked on, was about 50 meters long and less than a meter in diameter, and contained a generator inside, a ladder and a chair, and investigators also indicated that the tunnel was heading towards the bank’s ATM
The investigators indicated that there are more than one person who dug the tunnel without being able to reach the bank, and the investigations indicated that this tunnel is unique because it is very narrow, unlike the tunnels that were previously used in similar theft operations.
Later, the police found a crane and a car that were used to transport the dirt and rocks resulting from the drilling operations, which seemed to be obstructed by heavy rains in recent days and caused some collapses inside the tunnel.
The police quickly published pictures of the car, the crane and the generator, in the hope that some people would recognize their owners, which would facilitate the arrest of these thieves.
