Millions of pounds worth of gems stolen in the daring Hatton Garden heist


Recommended Posts


The estimated £200million-worth of jewels and diamonds stolen in the Hatton Garden gem heist 'are already out of the country', an expert has claimed.

Thieves used heavy-duty cutting equipment to break into a vault packed with jewels in London's diamond district after abseiling down a lift shaft in a meticulously-planned raid over the weekend.

The gang are thought to have struck on the Thursday night after workers had left the City for the long Easter weekend, giving them four days to break into around 70 safety deposit boxes kept in an underground vault.

As London's jewellers waited to find out if their gems were among the huge number taken, former Flying Squad chief Barry Phillips told how stolen goods were usually whisked overseas in the hours immediately after similar raids.

Believe or not a lot of these so called "high security places" have laxed security because they think no would be ballsy enough to attempt..

Seems unbelievable, no cameras anywhere? No $10/hour rent a cop? Nothing?
