Wait a minute, I thought YOU had the loot!

MADRID (AP), Feb 24 - There's nothing like a flat tire to ruin a carefully planned heist.
Spanish police say hooded thieves crashed a van into a courier service warehouse vault and made off with sacks of valuables on Thursday. They then fled in a waiting Audi, but crashed into another car as they merged onto a Madrid highway.
That caused the flat.
The four thieves carjacked another vehicle at gunpoint. No one was hurt and the thieves got away - but left most of their booty in the back seat of the damaged Audi.
The courier service SEUR said the stolen goods were things of ``special value'' worth no more than (euro) 50,000 ($67,000), although Spanish newspapers said the amount was much higher. El Mundo said the loot included diamonds and Rolex watches.
