Thieves of the Year
Thieves spent around half a year preparing for this crime.
The thieves, named “The Mole Gang,” dug a 100-foot (30 meters) tunnel under a busy parking lot in a bold robbery on a shop's cash machine. It took them as many as 6 months to dig the underground passage from a lonely railway embankment to the ATM beside a Fallowfield, Manchester Blockbuster. From there, they pierced up through 15 inches (38 centimeters) of solid concrete before grabbing a few thousand pounds from the cash machine, and easily absconding with the money back down the tunnel.
