Tall and short

Post by cosmicway » Fri Jun 16, 2017 7:58 am

There was a gang in Greece called the "tall and the short" in the 90s.
Those two robbed many banks until got caught in the end.
Two thirds of the loot were recovered, one third they lost in the races.
The police found the explanation satisfactory.

How much money are we talking about exactly? Judging by the level of corruption in Greece, I wouldn't be surprised if the missing third was distributed among the chiefs of police themselves.

Happened back in the nineties.
Probably 20-25 million drachmas.
I don't believe the police could become involved in a trick with the such low life characters.
If it was somebody like the Tory government of the UK then they might.
