    yep, lools like an inside job. But whomever the insider was, should have told him to wear a mask. IDIOT!!!!

      I agree. I guess he didn’t think the place had cameras. He should be locked up for being an IDIOT as well as B&E and stealing!!!!

  2. Army Of One says:

    He ‘opened the safe’? Sounds like an inside job to me. How did he know the combination to the safe?
