What's the title of a robbery movie, where thieves are trying to keep the police out of the robbery site by giving them some calls about various things, like for example bomb in the park?

I don't remember what exactly they stole, but they used the trucks from the construction site where the robbery took place. I remember that they had to drive to the tunnel under the construction and it got flooded in the end.

Sounds like Die Hard: With a Vengeance to me.

According to SARSman1973:

John McClane is now almost a full-blown alcoholic and is suspended from the NYPD. But when a bomb goes off in the Bonwit Teller Department Store the police go insane trying to figure out what's going on. Soon, a man named Simon calls and asks for McClane. Simon tells Inspector Walter Cobb that McClane is going to play a game called "Simon Says". He says that McClane is going to do the tasks he assigns him. If not, he'll blow off another bomb. With the help of a Harlem electrician, John McClane must race all over New York trying to figure out the frustrating puzzles that the crafty terrorist gives him. But when a bomb goes off in a subway station right by the Federal Reserve (the biggest gold storage in the world) things start to get heated up.

The bad guys aren't interested in McClane or the bombs at all, other than how they can tie up the police. They get away in dump trucks loaded with gold, by driving down a new extension to a (I believe the Holland) tunnel. The trivia section to the IMDB page says:

The chase scenes in the tunnel were filmed in New York City Water Tunnel Number 3, an unfinished aqueduct connecting the city to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York.

Thanx a lot. I would never suspect that it is Die Hard :) –  Mononid Jul 1 at 13:16
