10 Of The Biggest Robberies In The World

A lot of high-profile crimes tend to feature a computer and network over an assault rifle and a massive stash of cash. However, before all of this sophisticated technology, people still used regular firearms and a shoddy plan before storming a bank, train, or anywhere else that may hold high volumes of cash. With enough planning, a crafty criminal could get away with hundreds of thousands, if not millions. So, without further ado, here are ten of the biggest robberies in the world

Lufthansa Heist

Back on December 11, 1978, Irish gangster Jimmy Burke, who was part of the Luccese crime family, received permission to carry out a massive heist at JFK airport. Gunmen from his family and the Gambino family entered building 261, storming off with $6 million.




The Great Train Robbery

In August of 1963, Bruce Reynolds and his gang went board a train on the Bridego Railway Bridge in Buckinghamshire, England. The crew made off with 40 million worth of cash. Most of the robbers left the country soon after, though.
