December 21, 1998, is marked in history for the largest ever bank robbery executed in Nevada. Agent Henry Shlumpf from the FBI received the distress signal at around midnight and rushed onto Charleston Boulevard.

That night interlaced with dread, he discovered that two armed men had kidnapped three janitors as part of their grand plan. While Henry tried to manage the guard shot down by the robbers, they sped away, bagging an amount that would rock Nevada.
