In Corvallis, Oregon, the two men entering the large, two-story brick building from the roof one night were prepared. While in prison, one of the men
had become friends with an inmate who used to work in this particular building. Both now knew the floor plan, when security made its rounds, and, most
importantly, that there was a large safe inside. A payroll safe -- and tomorrow was payday!
After climbing down a rope ladder to the second floor, they proceeded to the first floor and found the safe. It was huge. Break-in proof. But they had
an equalizer. Why spend four hours hammering and drilling trying to knock off the tumbler when a few sticks of dynamite would do the job in seconds?
Thirty seconds after lighting the fuses, they had their answer. In a tremendous explosion that practically leveled the building, the two were buried
in a salvo of brick, wood, dirt, and debris. And that's where the police found them. After a stint in the hospital, both men were tried, convicted,
and sentenced to prison.
What our two "dumbolition" experts didn't know was that the company that used to occupy the building had relocated. The old safe was too costly to
move, so they sold it to the incoming construction company, which found it perfect for storage of their dynamite!
