Born without much common sense Nikki made for the perfect fall guy in Rikki and his gang's next caper which was going to be a heist at the city's only jewelry store. Details aside, it would be a cakewalk, after the crew secured the plundered stones they'd just spin a yarn on old stupid Nikki that would have him stay behind to bear the brunt of their job. When the cops got there by the time they dealt with all his foolishness they would have extended time to get the fuck out of dodge.
