This might be the 'greatest' $1.6 million heist caught on camera

WATCH |  Ever find a $5 bill deep in your pockets and think you hit the lottery? Well, this guy walked by a parked truck in New York City and swiped a ordinary looking black bucket. The containments of that bucket are an estimated $1.6 million worth of gold flakes. 

The incident caught on camera occurred on September 29 in midtown New York, West 47th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. Surveillance footage of the theft was not made available until recently. 

The two armored guards from Loomis International, a transportation company specializing in valuable goods, told police they noticed the missing bucket when they were picking up some goods at a nearby location. The 5 gallon drum containing 86 pounds of gold flakes is still missing, along with the culprit.

The simplicity of the heist has garnered these kind of reactions online. 

The shipment was en route to Ontario, Canada to Asahi Refining, a metal refinery.  Along with Loomis International, they have not made any comments on the situation. The NYPD is still searching for the culprit.
