The same applies for the 3 extra cases. They contain silver and chew up too much time. Oils O’ Sullivan only deals with gold.


Police siren starts approx. 2.40m


This method should net you ₤138, 500.




A note from Yan:
After each robbery, the team members ask higher prices - since the Antique Coin Shop do not gives that much loot, it is better to let it unrobbed and to start directly with the Art Collection. The initial 55,000 is enough to buy the plan and all the swag data, along with a team of Baby-face Clive and the least expansive burglar (_ Canon?). By robbing all the loot (3 paintings, 1 gold and 3 silvers) you should end up with almost 130,000 - ready for the next robbery with much cheaper teammates... In the long run it adds-up to substantial savings.
