Icon13 White & wrong

A crafty trio of black robbers bought amazingly lifelike disguises from a Hollywood special-effects firm to transform themselves into white guys for a brazen Queens heist and their get-ups were so good, their victims had no clue they were in masks.

File this one under "stupid criminals".

The major break in the case came after police discovered an e-mail from Byam to CFX offering a hearty endorsement after the robbery, according to police

Why's that stupid? It doesn't say that he endorsed the mask for helping him commit a crime, and he may well still be naive enough to believe what the US government says about not routinely reading everybody's email, so why would he even think it was an issue to send a private email to an unconnected party?
