70 safe deposit boxes filled with up to $300 million in jewelry were stolen in London jewel heist


I don't like thieves, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the work that went into a masterful jewel heist like the one that took place over Easter weekend at Hatton Garden Safe Deposit in London.

The raiders reportedly broke through a wall and abseiled down a lift shaft at Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd in the City of London.

They are then believed to have disabled the alarms for the vault before cutting through its 18inch thick door and breaking into boxes.
