    "Watch insane European robbers try to make a heist on a moving truck"

    Re: Make A Heist

    Given that 'heist' is an informal word, the meaning is clear enough: 'carry out a robbery'.

    Re: Make A Heist

    I'd say "carry out a heist" or just "heist," as in "watch insane robbers try to carry out a heist on a truck" or "watch insane robbers try to heist a truck" would be correct, and thsi si not, although it is clear what is meant.

    @HighJack - this is the second time you have asked this question. Please don't do that. It was the middle of the night here in the UK when you asked it the first time.

    You can also "pull off" a heist.
