the dumbest heist?

It's so glaringly stupid that I hesitate to dignify it with the word "stupid." A man decides to rob a bank in a community of 2,000 people, most of whom know each other. The main way of ingress and exit is via the local airport. Nevertheless:
An armed man has robbed a bank in the world’s northernmost settlement on Norway’s remote Arctic archipelago of Svalbard – but he was caught shortly afterwards, authorities have said....
The odds of the heist succeeding were always low on the archipelago, famous for glaciers and its polar bears, who outnumber residents.
