1.15 “The Bank Job”
In Iraq, an Islamic terrorist group steals a truck with $5 million dollars of U.S. cash and NCIS: LA tracks the money back to the U.S. where they learn the money has been stolen to hire an accomplished bank robber to rob a local bank. Further investigation suggests that the bank robbery is intended as a ruse to allow a bank employee to transfer $100 million of the terrorist’s money that has been frozen by the government to an offshore bank. During the robbery, Kensi gets shot and though Sam is able to kill a couple of the robbers, the bank employee gets away. Nothing is as it seems but Callen and Sam are able to reclaim the money and arrest the inside man.
