Theiving Essay

821 words - 3 pages

Jason awoke in a sweat again. The red digital display of the clock radio told him it was 3:15AM, and although he wanted to go back to sleep, he knew he wouldn't be able to - he hadn't had a good night's sleep since his last job with Mat Johnson. It was the First National Bank on High Street. As soon as they started grabbing cash the cops were there.

Jason had noticed and had ran out the back door, but Mat was too slow - he got shot in the head.

Jason stepped silently from the small red hatchback parked in the street outside of the Federation Bank Building. He stood for a moment, letting his eyes scan the street, and on finding no one, grabbed his bag and jogged quietly across the road to the front doors of the bank. There were two pin tumbler locks protecting the doors, but he quickly picked them both and entered the building, immediately scanning the room for security devices. There was a movement sensor in the far left corner of the room, focused to the right of his head. He slowly and carefully drew his gun and put a bullet through the sensor's lens.

With the security out of the way, he made his way to the back of the bank and down the small corridor to the vault. The vault was protected with a large metal grill, and although it had a lock on it, when he tried to pick it, it only bent his tools. Although...
