The not so dynamic duo knocked over a Banco Popular on 25th Street and 2nd Avenue and then jumped in a cab. One small problem though: a dye pack in their money bag exploded, prompting the cabbie to stop and demand an explanation. Even stupider: one of the men who originally hailed the cab had his ID in a suitcase in the trunk of the cab, making it very easy for the NYPD to bust them. |NYP|
