Thieves Grab $50 Million In Diamonds
You can almost bet it will end up in a movie someday, maybe a new version of "Mission Impossible" as jewel thieves stole $50 million in diamonds..
They came dressed as police and the team of 8 thieves. They arrived on the runway in Brussells carrying machine guns. Apparently security at this point had been minimized because the 8 crooks seized the diamonds as they were being loaded onto a flight to Switzerland, and iIn a matter of minutes, the diamonds were gone and so were the crooks.
"This was not a random robbery," said a spokesperson for the Brussels' prosecutor's office, "It was well-prepared—these were professionals."
Police are still investigating, but have no leads at the moment. Obviously they were professionals and well-prepared crooks!
