Three armed bandits stole nearly $1.7 million in cash from a canal boat in Venice, Italy, on Monday in a robbery experts say was like it was pulled from the big screen. An armored truck had just delivered three cases of money to a courier boat around 7 a.m. Monday when the armed bandits pulled up in their own boat. One man held a rifle to a security guard’s head while his accomplice jumped out from under a tarp, opened all three cases and then took the two cases holding bank notes, leaving behind the third case full of coins, according to Italian news agency ANSA.
