Here is a really sad story. This week jewels, estimated to be worth in excess of $1B, were stolen from the Green Vault museum in Dresden, Germany. What makes this even sadder is that the museum was not insured.
It appears that the thieves first set fire to an electrical junction box, then cut through a metal grate, smash a window, shattered the display cases, grab the jewels, and ran. The whole theft took place in about 20 minutes — a really big smash and grab!
