Re: I don't think the police are trying very hard.....

Although nobody wants to think about the messy and uncomfortable implications of this being an "inside job" following an manual evacuation (of the toilet of course).

I also however don't believe it could be entirely solid gold - given that gold would (highly approximately) weigh around twice as much as solid steel, and would need something a bit less bendy to be included or be far less pure to retain strength. If I approximate that toilet even bowl only is likely to weigh in at over 30Kg in solid gold you are hardly likely to be running away with it. Lots of huffing and puffing involved in this even without the magazines stuffed behind it...
