Bank Heist- just like the movies...

Thieves tunneled into a bank in northeastern Brazil and stole $68 million, the biggest bank heist in the nation's history, police said on Monday. They dug a tunnel ... that goes underneath two (city) blocks. They dug for three months.

The theft was not discovered until Monday morning because the bank was closed. The tunnel was dug right underneath the vault. The tunnel measured at 80 meters (260 feet).

The tunnel, which started in a house rented by the gang, was reinforced with wood and plastic and had electric light. Police said the thieves had perforated the concrete floor of the vault to get in, but motion sensors inside did not go off.Federal police also said it was the biggest known heist in Brazil. They suspect that between six and 10 people did the job.

Small Time Crooks (Woody Allen, Tracey Ullman, & Hugh Grant). Crazy stuff huh?
