How to Rob a Bank
Viceland

Every day in the USA an average of 14 banks are robbed. This series tells the personal stories of the bank robbers and the law enforcement officers who caught them. From the first catalyst that sets the robber on a criminal journey, through to the execution of plans and the inevitable fallout. This series will explore the human dimensions of these crimes, sometimes viewed as victimless, as well as some of the mysteries that surround the robbers’ motives, collaborators, and on-going conspiracies.
