The Italian Tennis Job

During February 2003, as a tennis tournament provided cover, an Italian gang slipped inside the Antwerp Diamond Center and emptied 123 safe deposit boxes of gems leaving 37 untouched.

The total loss was eventually calculated to be a mind-boggling 100 million Euro – or $107 million – The Italian Tennis Job ranks as the high water mark of robberies.

DNA from a half-eaten sandwich led authorities to a suspect who now awaits trial.

But as none of the jewels has ever been found…time well spent?
