Deep Undercover- Operation Bank Robbery

deep ucThe television series, Deep Undercover, created by Joe Pistone, better known as “Donny Brasco” will air Operation Bank Robbery this Wednesday on the ESCAPE channel.

This episode tells the story of a bank robbery my partner and I, working as undercover narcotics detectives, were invited to participate in by a father/ son team.  A bank in a town about 50 miles south of St. Louis being the target.

The plan is to set off a bomb at a shopping center on the other side of the town.  When police officers are attending to the bomb the bank will be taken down.

This well planned and orchestrated robbery had the potential to kill and injure a number of innocent people…including the bank robbery

Tune in this Wednesday @10:00 PM EST on the ESCAPE network for this exciting story.  I gotta tell ya, it was damn sure exciting for me.
