RARA-AVIS: New Yorker Trenchcoat Robbers article

From: Mbdlevin@aol.com

The July 8 issue of the New Yorker has a good, short article on this robbery team. Parts of it read a little like a Stark/Parker novel, including the house on the lake. They did 27 jobs--the last, in 1997, according to the article, was the largest take in U.S. history: $4,461,681 -- 355 pounds of cash. It was the Seafirst Bank in Kent, WA -- lots of cash because they took deposits from other branches and from a nearby Indian casino. Bad luck, more or less, took them down -- all starting with the IRS (recall Parker's claim in The Score, I think, that he pays his taxes). Coincidentally, in today's mail with the New Yorker, I got a penalty notice/bill from the IRS -- and I thought we were all square. Doug
