I followed the rules, but failed.
I tried to draw the police away from the door to the back of the shop by blowing up a nearby scooter. It worked, and they all ran to investigate, while I looped behind them and broke through the door with the only tool I had available: a crowbar.
For a fleeting moment, I was extremely pleased with my action-hero ingenuity … but then a stupid civilian, who was curled up on the ground some distance away with her head in her hands and who I assumed was too scared to care what I was up to, noticed my crime and ran to tell the cops.
The remainder of my attempt went as messily and violently as you might expect. lol
