Robbers drill giant hole through vault in $300M jewelry heist

In a remarkable heist reminiscent of Ocean's 11, crafty burglars drilled an enormous hole through a vault in order to ransack a safety deposit box vault, making off with more than $300 million in jewels.

According to the BBC, 72 safe deposit boxes were opened at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd in London over the Easter holiday this month, with the crooks leaving behind dozens of empty, discarded deposit boxes and their heavy-duty power tools.
