Description: "00/00/1998: Darnell Bass, 31, Sergeant in the Canadian Airborne Regiment (CAR), and white supremacist Patrick Steven Ryan, 30, disguised themselves as security guards and staged an armed heist on a Brinks armoured car, in an attempt to steal $400,000. Described as “the most violent hold up in Calgary history,” the robbery involved the use of tear gas and a hail of almost 90 gunshots. The commando-style raid on the bank ultimately failed and police raided Ryan’s apartment, uncovering neo-Nazi literature and paraphernalia, including an Aryan Nations flag, a David Irving book, and a number of white supremacist films."
