Bank Raid!!!!

Just before all the action kicks off as cachers from all over The World head to The Bank areas this one slips in!!

Once again it began with a seemingly innocuous log…
Retrieve It from a Cacheden sure kalkun retrieved Mad Max the Wrestler from Overlooking something
You’re coming with me!

Only to be followed shortly after by…

Mad Max Coin
Dropped Offden sure kalkun
placed Mad Max the Wrestler in The MEGA Bank (Edinburgh)
He will have a shiny new coin attached and will be placed into the safe house soon.


…but it almost never happened- den sure kalkun reported…
At GZ I was a little lot confused.  There is no place to hide a cache here, surely?  I tried one, but if it was there, surely it would have had a particular attribute?  Double-checked… no, that attribute was not there.  I was then ready to give up, but Elpth found the cache.  And yes, there is a missing attribute.  This would have been a DNF were it not for Elpth’s boldness.  Well done her.

Valerio Viccei Arreseted

Just like his name-sake he had success but ultimately got arrested!! Lets hope that unlike his name-sake he will learn his lesson and not end up the same way.

After successfully completing (but not winning) The Bank Job 2012 he has a year off. This year, though, he couldn’t help himself. The rest doesn’t seem to have helped, though, as 5 months later with only 3 moves he was still in North West England on Day 153…

Dropped OffShortGaiters placed Valerio Viccei in Mere Sands Wood: Reap the Whirlwind
A bit closer to Scotland.

But his movements did not go unnoticed…
Chase-2 this is Base Ops…
10:50 UTC — CAT has been notified that Valerio Viccei was observed entering a geo-lodging facility about an hour ago. approximately 10 miles north of his last know address. Now in the Mere Woods area east of Southport. Your Map display has been updated. Case assignment to be posted with 10-43 later.
Base Ops 10-64viccei arrest

Chase-2’s pilot, stevebm, was quick to respond…

Valerio arrested
Dropped Offstevebm placed Valerio Viccei in Mere Sands Wood: Reap the Whirlwind

Chase 2 arrested Valerio Viccei – Bank Robber at the mere sands cache. Chase 2 was drop at the cache to make the arrest. He was left in the cache waiting to be picked up by ground support.

So, Valerio Viccei is out of the game.

Then, to rub salt into the wound another cacher visited later in the day…
Retrieve It from a Cache RedwoodWarriors retrieved Valerio Viccei from Mere Sands Wood: Reap the Whirlwind
Guess where we’re going next month? Yes, the Mega in…. Ayr! 

He may make it to The Bank, but he will not be successful in robbing it and will not receive a gold coin!

Bank Raid!!!!

And just like buses, more than one at a time, will there be a third to make the saying complete?

This one began back at the beginning of may when Darth was picked up by NewInners
We will be able to help this on its way to Scotland, we have good contacts up there.

But then he went to London and France before gradually making his way back up through Yorkshire, slowly!

Then finally today…
Made a trip to the Bank today to deposit (haha!) Darth Raider – Approached the premises with stealth only to be caught with our hands on the safe!  After a bit of smooth talking and promises that no one would be hurt we managed to leave Darth Raider to enable him to carry out the bank job.  We wish him all the best on the rest of his mission.
