Gold Heist

My wife alerted me to this story. Sounds like a comedy heist film.

Thieves intercepted a truck carrying 275 pounds of gold from North Carolina to Boston. To make their job easy, the thieves installed a GPS device under the truck, to track their target. And they also installed a remote-control pepper-spray inside the truck, to force the driver of the truck to pull over to the side of the road.

Anyway, the thieves pretended to be police, captured the truck security guards, and tied the driver and guards up in the woods next to the road.

"Then the robbers put out orange traffic cones (pictured) to make the stopped truck appear innocuous, and wore reflective clothing to appear as though they belonged on the roadside, too, according to the affidavit"

The police say they've caught the ringleader. But they're still trying to catch 2 other bad guys. And the gold. They're still trying to find the gold.

Where do you buy remote-control pepper-spray?
And what do most people do with it, anyway?
