    I would put the odds of an inside job as approaching unity.

    Deserted stretch of I95 coincident with engine trouble sufficient to stop the vehicle? Occam's razor would cut this into pieces.

    I call shenanigans.

    (# employees - 1) / # employees

    Those are my odds.

    Offer a cut to the first detective on the scene and the investigation suddenly becomes, not an inside job.

    Not necessarily. Everything you read on the internet is true, right? So the thieves hacked into the onboard computer of the gold truck and force it to stop right at a deserted location, all while doing 60 mph. The rest is easy!

    Armored car robberies are an inside job often enough that the guards are required by their employer to submit to polygraph tests on demand as a condition of employment.

    Yeah, that was the deal breaker on that job, that and the urine testing all the time. Never did understand their logic so I hired on with the White House. :)

    I once work for a company that used series of verbal questions to weed out poor candidates:

    1. Do you take any illegal or dangerous drugs?
    2. Do you have any on your person right now?
    3. Will you share some with me?

    If you answered "yes" to all three questions we would give you a job.

    What ever happened to that era? Can the way-back machine take me there?

    I think, if I just hijacked 4 million dollars, I would refuse the lie detector and expect to get fired. :p
