4 Shocking Jewelley Heists
As leading specie insurers, we insure high value items such as jewellery (both private jewellery and jewellers block), fine art and cash in transit - all of which are items vulnerable to theft and James Bond-esque heists, as evidenced by the following jewellery heists...
The thieves let off tear gas in the entrance to prevent anyone entering the building, but little did they know the police were already inside. Thankfully, the police had been tipped off prior to the heist, meaning they were able to prepare by disguising themselves as cleaning crew and swapping out the diamonds with replicas. Once the thieves had sufficiently incriminated themselves, the police pounced and arrested the lot of them!
Since the heist, the Police have managed to round up 30 suspects across three different countries, recovering only a few of the stolen gems.
