"Supplying movie and TV crews with tanks for period and wartime dramas is just one of the tasks performed by Tanks-A-Lot, a British company in Northamptonshire owned by Nick Mead.

He scours the world looking for tanks to market to production companies, for tank-driving experiences, and other events requiring tanks.

He also buys and sells other types of military paraphernalia, and in 2017 he thought he'd seen it all when it comes to formidable military weapons. But the best was yet to come…."

Before I sell a tank I always look under the seats, check the glove compartment, etc. There could be a couple bucks in the coin tray.

The tank was mine and I stashed some bullions in it while at Fort Knox, but it got stolen so the thief (I should be the one talking, huh?) had no idea what he really had when he sold it.

"Naturally, Mead notified authorities immediately about the find." He's obviously not a player-character, but, really, isn't your first call to your lawyer to find out what your legal obligations are and the consequences for not fulfilling them? Second call is probably to your fence.

OK, now, really thinking like a player-character: he stopped filming at the fifth bar, but he knows that there are 15 more bars in there. Those 15 were promptly moved to a secure location. Then he "immediately" notified the authorities about the first 5.

As far as his crew, I think that the ones who drink the most and get the most outspoken when drinking are the ones most likely to die in drunk driving accidents in the near future. Anyone else with a reputation for talking first and thinking later is in danger of a cerebral hemorrhage, triggered by acute lead poisoning. And so on.
