Burglar: Cobra

Burglar: Cobra

A Story by Abishai100

A wily 'copycat' thief stages a media-stunt to draw detectives towards a blood-diamond baron's dollars in Brussels.

Another copycat-heist, inspired by Takers. Enjoy, 


Amlan Satan (code-name: Storm-Shadow) arrives in Brussels (Belgium) to steal blood-diamonds from a Belgian bank safe-box belonging to the corrupt Baron Goldfinger.

Storm-Shadow is hitting this very fine Brussels bank which is connected to an entire Euro-diamond market.

Storm-Shadow dresses up like a 'Scarecrow' for the heist and calls himself the 'Burglar' on heist-day.

BURGLAR: I enjoy fine paintings of snakes, since they remind me of great nature.

Burglar (Storm-Shadow) shows his acid-gun to the manager/guardsman and requests to be taken to the Goldfinger safe-box.

BURGLAR: No one's to think that this was anything else but a heist staged by Goldfinger for media stunts at your bank!

GOLDFINGER: I have no idea who this 'Burglar' really is.

Storm-Shadow ('Burglar') then blogs online, "Here's a pic of my favorite robot-toy to remind me of anti-terrorism."

Sounds like a cool story, eh? Only there's a strange/eerie twist. This 'Burglar' performed a replica heist of a robbery committed with the exact same details, involving Goldfinger's blood-diamonds just one month prior, and the press isn't sure which of the robberies is some kind of media-staged 'stunt' designed to draw attention away from Goldfinger's rumored activities. Burglar (Storm-Shadow) is the perfect modern-day 'copycat' detective.
