Aren't 500 euro bills a lot lighter?

Using 16 oz per a pound and 1600$ per an ounce,

it would of been 12.1 MILLION dollars. And they had poor security? wtf?

Yeah, let's just keep making gold runs in our fishing boat with no security.

I'm sure none of our crew will catch on, get greedy and set up an inside smash and grab job.

I didn't RTFA, but I've been to Curacao. Its a dutch protectorate less than 30 miles off the coast of Venezuela. You do the math.

Sure, I ship 70 pounds and the captain is all over my ass. Shouldn't he be focusing on the 476 pounds that were stolen by bad guys? Typical.

Do you find them much, these, stolen bars?

Sometimes. Wouldn't hold out much hope for the tape deck though.

Or the Creedence.

I'm from Curacao. I wouldn't want to be in charge of protecting anything that valuable on that island unless I had serious firepower. And even then I don't think I'd want to play.
