The note read ‘Thank you for the bonus, we can live on this loot for life.’

At the time, it was the biggest heist in Japan’s history, thought to be equivalent to around $5.4 million today.

No one was ever convicted for the robbery and the case is now closed as the 7 year period in which someone must be tried for the crime has passed.

A man by the name of Yoshihiro Morimoto is the alleged suspect and was arrested in a separate robbery attempt where he tried to steal cash containers from parking lot of a different bank.
