Bandits, pirates, highwaymen…what would history, movies or poetry be without the stories of these swashbuckling rogues?! There are heists that have been immortalized in history, and the dare-devil thieving gangs went on to become legends – remember The Pink Panther movies or Butch Cassidy?
This infographic explores some awe-inspiring heists in history, and the aftermath of the robbery. For example, the Boston Museum Heist in 1990: 13 priceless paintings of Rembrandt, Manet and Degas were stolen by two ‘police officers’. They haven’t been found to this day, and empty frames still adorn the walls of the gallery!
