    checks aren't enough.

    Sounds like another inside job and as always 3 black guys walk in and just happen to know where the office is to just walk in and the money was just sitting there in the open.I dont think so The workers heard of the other two robbery's and decided well lets take this and blame it on 3 black guys driving a newer car?Sounds fishy to me.And I am white and I dont even believe this story
