Brazil bank heist: Armed gang mount fierce assault on city of Criciúma
Military police reported that a fire had been set in a tunnel on the main road leading to the city, presumably to prevent the security forces from sending reinforcements to the town. The police headquarters also came under attack.
In other parts of the city, at least six people were used as "human shields" by the armed men, who forced them to sit on a pedestrian crossing to block the road.
Residents posted images on social media of what they described as snipers on rooftops.

I hope they took the money to buy bling, houses, cars, hookers and drugs.
Im just thinking if they took so much time to plan and prepare all the diversions,including throwing at least some stolen money away-they may have had another target from a safety deposit box or something?
