Used an electromagnet to steal
a briefcase and a gun

Used a crowbar to escape from
a crushed car through the trunk

Used a forklift to capture
thieves in their car

Created a chain reaction diversion
using a signal flare, airplane tire,
life jacket, and a life raft

Used a signal flare to
blow up a truck

Used a mirror and a whistle
to send a signal

Exploited a fear of snakes to
commandeer a jeep

Used a decoy to direct a jeep
into a pit

Used a road block to trigger
rifles to fire remotely at jeep tires

Used a log swung from a rope to
knock soldiers from their jeep

Used jeep exhaust and bamboo
filled with fire ash and rice
alcohol to create tear gas

Used a cable and a jeep winch
to bring down a helicopter
