This story is amazing! The video below gives a fairly brief overview of the entire, incredible tale, but the Wired article, tells the full story. A story worth reading.

It details what was called the 'heist of the century'. The man in charge of planning the crime was an Italian named Leonardo Notarbartolo. In 2003, he and his team managed to make off with an estimated 100 million euro, conquering one of the most secure vaults on the face of the earth. The vault, with its infrared heat detectors, Doppler radar, magnetic field, seismic sensor, and lock with 100 million possible combinations, was thought to be impenetrable.

Investigators of the heist have been desperate to find out just how they had been fooled, but Notarbartolo always refused to talk.

That is, until now!
