The Impossible Diamond Robbery

March 18th, 2009

ThiefHere’s the lowdown on how thieves stole tens of millions of dollars worth of diamonds from the Antwerp Diamond Center. Such a theft was considered impossible because of the extensive security measures in place. Almost all of the robbers were later caught, but they would have gotten away with it except for one weak link in the group. (Note to self: when performing a $100 million diamond heist, don’t rely on others to destroy the evidence.) What I found most interesting, however, is the claim that the theft was just a cover for insurance fraud.
