Top 10 Largest Bank Robberies in Modern History    

#7. Northern Bank Robbery
Belfast, UK - 2004
Stolen: £26.5 million ($41 million)



Days before Christmas, a gang of robbers posing as officials coaxed their way into the homes of two of the bank branch managers, holding them and their families at gunpoint. The following day, as their families remained under threat, the managers were instructed to head to work as normal, and told to let the robbers in at the end of business hours. Once they looted the place, the thieves released the families unharmed. Many have speculated that the whole thing was the work of the Provisional IRA or Sinn Fein, but as of today the crime remains unsolved.
