These bank robbers are just downright brilliant. I mean it’s totally wrong to rob anyone but if you’re going to do it you might as well do it Andy Dufresne style. As all of America celebrated the birth of our nation, a bank was being robbed without anyone knowing. Gothamist.com reports on how someone used the Independence Day fireworks as a distraction to burgle the Popular Community Bank on the Lower East Side of New York City.

The unidentified criminals cut through the roof of the bank. Everyone knows when you cut through a roof, it tends to make a lot of noise. Using the flashing lights and loud kabooms to mask their construction, these modern day Sean Connerys from the movie “Entrapment” slipped in and out before anyone could notice. They made off with almost $300,000.
