then you'll find the artist, and

you've got yourself a bank robber.

Sounds pretty standard to me.

Right. Well, thanks a lot, old-timer.

You know, we're going to

get you an application.

Hey, listen. I've watched this TV show

called Law and Order, and they solve

crimes much quicker than you do.

You should tune in.

Well, you know, in the real world,

solving crimes takes a little longer

than a one-hour television show.

Well, I guess this wraps

it up for us, Mr. Harding.

If we need any additional information,

then we'll get in contact with you.

Oh. You'll need my address

and phone number.

Uh, not necessary.

We'll find you. That's what we do.

So, what'd they look like?

It was hard to tell. They had masks on.

I got close to one. It was

a male, about six feet.

And he had this tattoo

wrapped around his neck

that I told you about.

You know, you find the tattoo artist...

- You find the criminal.

- Exactly.

That's what I told them.

Okay. I'm sure you're not supposed

to be talking about all of this.

It must have been so cool being

in the middle of a heist.

Crime is not cool, babe.

He could have been shot.

Or worse.

What's worse than being shot?

Being shot twice.

This kind of detail

is traditionally indicative

of gang affiliation.

We believe these individuals

used the same tattoo artist.

If we can find this artist,

then we can find our perp.

It's pretty standard stuff really.

- Hey, that's what we said.

- Any other questions?

What an asshole.


If you have any information

regarding this tattoo artist...


"The three men walked off with

approximately 1.6 million dollars.

"The FBI and the NYPD

"are reporting no leads at this time."

So what?

Nobody gets hurt except the insurance

company. And they'll be fine.
