Meanwhile, as they take the plans and begin to painstakingly set up the heist, Frank escapes from the two cops and disappears into the countryside. The cops give chase, not knowing that all the while, four other criminals are attempting to break into the bank at night. Frank himself doesn't know that the heist is underway, just as his fellow criminals don't know that he's gotten away from the cops.

This is a silly comedy with some plot holes, but it's rather fun too, particularly the contrasting personalities of the thieves and the mostly futile efforts of the two cops.
