For most us, the only way to raise money to go on vacation with, pay our mortgage or clear our debts is to keep on slogging away at work and collecting up money the old-fashioned way. But if you don’t mind waving a gun around and risking decades in jail, there are other ways. Like robbing a bank! Although that said, you don’t always have to use a weapon. Some bank heists see the criminals getting surprisingly creative. AllTime10s have come up with ten of the most insane bank robberies ever. And some of them are just beyond weird…
