While you may be more familiar with the diamond heists seen in films, such as 2002’s Night at the Museum and 2008’s The Italian Job, there have been plenty of diamond heists in true crime over the years, as well. Here are some of the most famous thefts that have occurred around the world:
Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. On February 25, 2005, approximately $118 million worth of stones were stolen from the airport. The thieves wore stolen KLM uniforms and drove a stolen KLM truck to steal the diamonds, many of which were uncut and thus hard to put a value on. In addition, the drivers actually did a test scenario two weeks prior to their diamond heist using a stolen KLM cargo truck.
