Dan Bilefsky’s 2015 piece, “Graying Thieves and a Record Heist Undone in London,” which could have just as easily been entitled “One Last Score,” offers up a blow-by-blow recreation of another doomed heist, this one led by a 76-year-old lifetime criminal. As much a character study as a detailed accounting of star-crossed events, it begs to be rewritten as a vehicle for an ensemble of aging hard-guy actors.

Does bolded 'this one' represent 'a Record Heist' of 'another doomed heist'?

    It refers to what precedes it: another doomed heist.

    But, as it happens, that’s the same heist as the one mentioned in the title of the New York Times article.
