Antwerp’s diamond district and the lure

Antwerp’s Diamond District is a three block area that holds eighty percent of the worlds diamonds. On top of that imagine an industry where three-quarters of everyday business is under the table and your bound to have some action. That’s why our love for a good  hiest story has played the setting in countless novels, movies, and TV shows.  So read here for the World’s Biggest Heist.

In 2003 Leonardo Notarbatolo was accused of organizing a ring of Italian thieves to break into a vault two floors beneath the Diamond Center.  Notabatolo was released from prison this week after serving some six years behind bars.

They had executed the plan perfectly: no alarms, no police, no problems. The heist wouldn’t be discovered until guards checked the vault on Monday morning. The rest of the team was already driving back to Italy with the gems. They’d rendezvous outside Milan to divvy it all up. There was no reason to worry.
