Two men in Jacksonville, Florida went searching for marijuana in a home, and must have envisioned scenes from ‘The Italian Job’ when instead they decided to steal a safe using a MINI Cooper.
According to actionnewsjax.com the 18 and 20 year olds went to the home of a man they knew was in jail planning to steal his drugs. When they found a safe in the house, they took it and made a quick getaway in a convertible MINI Cooper. Sharp eyed neighbors saw the theft, and notified the homeowner’s family who detained the thieves (reportedly returning the safe) until police arrived.
