This was how a lot of robbers would work. Jewel thieves/etc- they knew they'd get caught so the operation was to rob/steal, bury the loot, go to jail for 5 years, then come out and dig up their money.

Saw a documentary about this called "Blue Streak". Martin Lawrence was in it.

I thought his documentary series about POC in the police force was very eye opening.

Not to be confused with the Tony Robbins documentary on relationships "Shallow Hal"

I also enjoyed his documentary series, “Bad Boys”. It really showed me the challenges of public service in Miami.

I vaguely remember a show on TV about an American drug smuggler who would bury his cash. IIRC he went to dig it out when he got out of prison (or on the run). I think it was an episode of I Almost Got Away With It

Absolutely thrilling documentary. Love the part where Dave Chapelle shows the protagonist thief how to rip someone’s nuts out through their mouth hole. Riveting work.

Guy actually talking about jewel thieves as if he has any knowledge on the subject beyond heist movies
