#6. Brink's-MAT Robbery
London, UK - 1983
Stolen: £26 million ($41 million)



On an early morning in November, six robbers made their way into the Brink's-MAT warehouse at Heathrow Airport with help from a security guard who was in on the job. Their original plan involved taking just the £3 million in cash thought to be under lock and key, but that changed once they discovered an additional three tons of gold bullion and diamonds, significantly padding their planned payday. Several subsequent murders have been linked to the case, and while much of the gang involved has since been convicted, the gold has never been recovered.
