Overachieving thieves make off with $50M in diamonds in 5-minute heist2/19/2013
In a perfectly choreographed heist, eight armed robbers snatched $50 million in diamonds at the airport in Brussels Monday. The masked gang smashed through an airport security fence in a Mercedes van, then held up a Brink's truck that was loading the gems onto a Helvetic Airways aircraft. They rifled through the cargo hold and took off in an Audi decked out in blue flashing lights that made it look like a police car. The entire operation lasted just minutes, and no shots were fired. Cops found the burned-out Benz, but there’s no sign of the Audi, the thieves or the 120 packs of cut and uncut diamonds, which authorities say will probably never be recovered from the top-notch crooks.
