Police are hunting for a woman who worked for a cash-handling company, but disappeared with almost $10 million (€8m/£7m).
Yasemin Gundogan worked as a currency-packing assistant in Bremen, Germany, but in May she is alleged to have fled with stacks of money stolen from armoured security company Loomis.
Despite trying to find her for weeks, police had to issue an arrest warrant, filing a notice with Interpol.
Gundogan was responsible for packing stacks of money into cases to be delivered to banks, cash-counting companies and betting shops.
She put the stolen cash in security bags as usual, but instead of passing them to be delivered, police believe she managed to sneak them out of the building by hiding them in a bin, covered up with rubbish.
The police report also states Gundogan rolled it outside, before unloading the bags into a black Mercedes-Benz minivan, complete with stole number plates.
She got in and was never seen again, although it's unclear as to whether she was acting alone.
According to police, no other employees noticed it was missing until four days had passed, with police unsure as to why CCTV at the office wasn't on that day.
Police are continuing their investigation.
Another brazen bank robber was uncovered earlier this year, after a man admitted federal bank robbery after renting out a car from a car dealership, before driving it to a bank, robbing that bank, then driving back with the cash to attempt to buy a BMW.
Eric Dion Warren, 50, was sentenced to 20 years in prison after he admitted his audacious - if not that well thought through - crime.
The incident took place in 2019, when Warren drove the dealership's loaner car out to a bank near Lubbock in Texas.
Once he arrived, he placed a fast food restaurant bag on the counter, and passed the cashier a note that said: "This is a f***ing robbery. Play with me and die. I want $10,000 in 50 and 100 dollar bills now you got 1 minute or I will kill you."
He later produced what appeared to be a handgun, telling the member of bank staff: "I ain't playing around, I only want 100s and 50s."
According to the prosecutors, the bank teller gave him the cash in the bag, but included a roll of $20 notes with recorded serial numbers.
He then took his $5,086 back to the same car dealership where he was seen to be in the process of buying a black BMW car.
Things started to unravel for Warren when the authorities got in touch with the car dealership a quarter of an hour later to tell them about the getaway car, which had plates that were registered with them.
The cops then showed up at the dealership and found Warren, with the cash, as well as a pellet gun that had been altered to appear just like a real weapon.
