Cue the Pink Panther soundtrack because today, we are taking a look at some of the most genius heists throughout history! The masterminds responsible for the thefts in these stories took daringness to heights that you and I could never imagine. While it might seem that these heist tales are so fantastical that they sound like the work of a Hollywood scriptwriter, they are all 100% true. Whether you are fascinated by true crime or not, I guarantee you won’t be able to deny how genius these wrongdoers were.
Hard Work Paid Off
Landscapers deserve a reputation for being diligent and hardworking. However, that does not always mean they end the day with large sums of money in their pockets. I’m sure that not even the most hardworking landscapers out there have managed to earn what the guys in our first story did.
You cannot claim that the thieves in this story were looking for a quick buck, considering that they spent more than three months incognito, digging a gigantic tunnel underneath a bank in Brazil where they posed as hired workers. The payoff is even more impressive when you realize that most of these criminals are still at large and that only 10 million of the $70 million stolen dollars were recovered by authorities.
