Passerby steals $1.6mln bucket of gold flakes from truck in New York

An armored truck company was making a pickup and left the back of the truck open and unattended in front of 48 West 48th St. between 5th and 6th avenues. In the time the truck was left alone, a man was able to walk up and take the pail, according to CNN.

In surveillance footage released by the police, a man walks up to the back of the truck, grabs the bucket, and shuffles off with it in broad daylight.

He was going to walk past the truck, but then he noticed the unattended bucket and returned to grab it. The video shows two men chatting in front of the truck as the suspect walks away with the gold.

The men don’t seem to notice the gold disappearing. In the footage, the thief can be seen struggling under the weight of the loot.

The NYPD is still looking for the thief. He is described as a Hispanic male who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 150 pounds and between 50 and 60 years old.
