A group of thieves in London raided the citys diamond district, The Hatton Garden, earlier this month and made off with a record-setting $300 million worth in jewelry, diamonds, and cash. The thieves infiltrated a safe deposit center knowing that many of the jewelers in the area would have left their stock for the Easter weekend. Its possible the gang of thieves took the entire extended weekend to loot up to 300 safe deposit boxes. This is how they did it:
The robbers disabled the elevator on the second floor and climbed down the shaft to the basement where the vault is located.
