Once upon a time, two guys from Down Under came to the swanky ski town of Vail, Colo. They soon fell in love with the town's rich lifestyle and decided they wanted to live the good life too. The quickest way to get rich? Rob the local bank, of course.
So that's what Luke Carroll, 19, and Anthony Prince, 20, did -- they robbed the WestStar bank in Vail last March. Unfortunately for them, they wore their workplace name tags and didn't even try to disguise their thick accents. Oh, and it was their own bank!
"That's what started our investigation," said FBI Special Agent Craig Bykrit. "The tellers recognized their heights and their accents. Both of them usually came in together to do their banking." Carroll is Australian and Prince is a New Zealander with permanent Australian residency.
