Den of Thieves | Final Trailer | Own It Now on Digital HD, Blu-Ray & DVD.
In Los Angeles, a team of robbers made up of former MARSOC Marines led by Ray Merrimen (Pablo Schreiber) perform a violent armed hijacking on an armored truck. Police officers arrive on the scene and engage in a shootout with the robbers. One of Merrimen's crew and four cops are killed in the shootout. Eventually, Merrimen and the rest of his crew escape with the empty armored truck.
In the morning, Detective Nick O'Brien, head of LASD's Major Crimes Unit, investigates the crime scene, having been monitoring Merrimen and his crew for a while. Suspecting a local bartender named Donnie (O'Shea Jackson Jr.) for involvement, Nick finds him at the bar and kidnaps him for interrogation. Donnie reveals that he met Merrimen through customers at the bar he works in, and that Merrimen had hired him as a driver for a robbery of a rave at a stadium for a large sum of cash. Donnie says he does not know where the cash is, but that Merrimen will not settle for this amount and is looking to "trade up".
While Nick and his team are doing research on Merrimen and his team, Merrimen lays out his plan to his team to rob the Federal Reserve that week by covertly removing about $30 million in old bills which are scheduled to be shredded after their serial numbers are deleted from computer records. Nick and his team later tail Donnie and observe him entering and exiting the Federal Reserve using a cover of a Chinese food deliveryman.
While at a restaurant, Nick approaches Donnie in front of Merrimen and his team and almost end up in a melee. At their hideout, Merrimen has one of his crew, Levi, roughly interrogate Donnie to ensure he didn't disclose anything about the plan. Merrimen then tells Donnie to make sure Nick knows that the heist is on for Friday. Donnie meets Nick and Nick's team at a clothing shop and reveals to them the day of the heist but claims not to know the location. Nick goes to a strip club and finds Merrimen's stripper girlfriend, hiring her for the night and finds out where the heist is going to happen. Merrimen's girlfriend later tells Merrimen that she did what he had asked her to. The next morning, Nick makes an effort to see his daughter at her school.
