The 10 Most Brilliant Criminal Minds in History

5 – The Friday Night Robber

Carl Gugasian or The Friday Night Robber is dubbed as the most prolific criminals in US history. He has robbed more than 50 banks in a 30 year period with a total of $2 million to his name.

How did Gugasian manage to pull out all these successful heists? He had been very meticulous in his planning and execution; however, a simple case of bad luck revealed his identity.

His stash of weapons, disguises and survival rations were found by teenage boys in a concrete drainage pipe near Gugasian’s home in Radnor, Pennsylvania. He is now serving 17 years in prison.
