The Securitas Robbery & The Knightsbridge

£3.99

Product description

In 2006 Tonbridge, Kent, became the scene of the largest ever cash heist in the world. A well organised and heavily armed gang forced their way into a Securitas cash depot, holding its manager and his family hostage. The money stolen was a colossal £53 million, the largest amount of cash ever stolen in a robbery. This phenomenal story is told through the eyes of the night supervisor, Alun Thomas, who was on duty on that fateful evening, along with the police officers who cracked the case.

Italy's most wanted criminal, Valerio Viccei, arrived in the UK wanted for over 50 separate armed robberies in his native country. In 1987 his final payday was to be the robbing of the Knightsbridge Safety Deposit Centre. However, the raid was less than perfect and Valerio was a man on the run after cutting his finger and leaving his blood at the scene of the crime. Having escaped to Israel with over £40 million in cash, Valero made the fateful mistake of returning to London to collect his beloved girlfriend.
