    Meet these 2 geniuses

    Discussion started by 2 blaazed - Oct 22, 2005

    OCTOBER 21--As if sticking up a Vail, Colorado bank and fleeing via ski lift wasn't dopey enough, it turns out that a pair of young robbers made the mistake of photographing themselves with the pilfered loot.

    As you can see in the pictures below (which were released today by federal prosecutors in Denver), would-be bandits Anthony Prince, 20, and Luke Carroll, 19, sure looked pleased with themselves following the March robbery of WestStar Bank.

    The men, both Australian residents who came to Vail to work during the ski season, pleaded guilty in June to the $130,000 heist, which they pulled off with the aid of unloaded BB guns.

    During today's hearing, Carroll (who posed holding two fans of twenties) was sentenced to five years in prison, while Prince (seen with a brick of bills in his right hand) was hit with a four-and-a-half-year term.

    Other digital photos recovered by investigators showed some of the stolen money stashed in a snowboard case. The robbery has received extensive coverage in the Australian press, where the pair has been dubbed "Dumb and Dumber" in light of the hair-brained plot.

    Along with their distinctive Down Under accents, when they robbed the bank, the men were wearing work badges from the ski shop where they were employed. And, minutes after the stickup, they even used their Vail ski passes to board a getaway chairlift just blocks from the WestStar branch.

    That first dude looks like this choad I went to school with.
    Therefore, he continues the track record of people who look like "that" being total fuckwads.

    Actually, they all kind of have that "Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers" look. Fuck them.

    That's actually a really large amount of money to get from a bank these days.

    At least they could have used some fake accents IMO.

    These clowns just give the rest of us Aussies a bad name.

    If I robbed a bank it would have much more intricate planning involved than using BB guns, haha.
