After cracking open an automated teller machine to extract the $6,000 it contained, burglars doused the crime scene in bleach to cover their tracks.
Four suspects were arraigned Tuesday as suspects in the crime at Friends Pizza in New York and nearly 60 similar incidents, WABC reported online Wednesday. A fifth suspect is already incarcerated at Riker's Island for an unrelated crime.
Some of the suspects told police that the bleach idea, which the article dubbed "Splash & Dash," came from a burglary scene in a Ben Affleck film called "The Town."
One of the suspects confessed to a few of the burglaries, whereas others confessed to nearly half, the article said.
