Gold Rush: Man Scurries Away After Stealing Pot of Gold Worth More Than $1M From Truck
Police are still searching for the suspect.
The end of the rainbow may mean jail time for one man who was caught on surveillance stealing a large pot of gold from a truck in New York City before scuttling away without anyone noticing.
The NYPD is on the case, hunting for the thief who robbed an armored truck of a bucket of gold flakes worth $1.6 million Thursday.
The truck was parked on West 48th street when the man walked up, took the 86-pound bucket out of the back of it, and slyly walked away.
A man who appeared to be in charge of the truck is seen talking to someone and doesn't seem to notice as the man gets away.
Police said the suspect is a Hispanic male, 5’6” tall, and 50-60 years old.
