Two security guards... rent-a-cops to clear homeless people off the steps.

Cameras are basic, easy to get around.

This is it.

CRAIG: Looks like a stack of poker chips.

$ million stack of poker chips.

A lot of foot traffic, as well.

Not at night.

DERAN: Steel bollards out front so you can't bust a truck in here.

How'd they get it in?

Bollards retract.

Eh, if you have a passcode.

And the security guards are a joke, but they can call the cops, who could be here in less than two minutes.

- How much does this weigh?
- tons.

So, basically, you want to break in here at night, get around the passcodes, subdue the guards before they call the police, get a truck in here, somehow, and get this -ton thing onto it, and get out... oh, and don't drop it, because it's a art piece.
