David "Boomer" Hayes is a very rich man decides to commit a robbery in Beverly Hills just because he can. He takes advantage of a big problem with police. Because it is exorbitantly expensive to live in Beverly Hills, all of its police, even the chief, live somewhere outside of the city. So if he can trap the on-duty police in the station, and cause a few road blocks to prevent the off-duty cops from getting into the city, he can basically hit any place he wants.
