As Easy as 3-1-2

A robber in Bournemouth, Dorset, England, managed to get a cashbox from an armored van courier at gunpoint, but had set his getaway car on fire before the robbery, and had to flee on foot. “We don’t yet know why” he set the car on fire, Detective Inspector Craig Travers said. “Normally when you get a robbery a vehicle is used to make off from the scene in and swapped for an exchange car later on, at which point the first car is set alight.” But the unidentified 44-year-old robber seems to have gotten the steps out of order, and was quickly apprehended.
