The amulet wasn't even there. That whole tangent was to discredit the security firm providing security for the museum, so that the speedster, a politician in his secret identity, could get them hired as the security crew in their place.
They got hired as the security crew, and secretly replaced the amulet they were supposed to steal with a duplicate, minutes before the duplicate was stolen by the Royal Flush Gang. They pretty much blew their security cover having a super powered show down, while being recorded on the security cameras, duking it out with the Royal Flush Gang. They just up and left after fighting the Royal Flush Gang, who managed to get away. They completely blew their cover as security guards, but as far as anyone else knows, the Royal Flush Gang "stole" the amulet.
They are see sawing back and forth between cold, calculating, ruthlessness and comedic shenanigans.
It's all over the place, but people are laughing uncontrollably and having a good time.
I forgot to mention, during the week leading up the heist the Thief committed a series of low value robberies, making no effort to conceal his crimes. He stole, Balloons, Party Decorations, A Helium Tank, and a Cake. On the Day of the Amulet Heist we teleported into a local bank vault, on camera, but after the timed locks sealed the vault for the night. He then set up the cake, balloons, streamers, etc.. in the vault, so they would have a nice suprise when they opened up in the morning. I'm not even certain he stole any money.
