Whoa! This is MUCH bigger than the Lufthansa heist in Goodfellas!!
A skilled team of crooks scored big last night, stealing around $50 mil worth of diamonds from a Belgian airport!
Eight hooded thieves with automatic weapons busted into the airport, raided the tarmac, and halted a Swiss-bound passenger plane hiding a little sumpin' sumpin' in the cargo hold!
They broke into the back of the Helvetic Airways Fokker 100 jet, nabbed the perezcious minerals that had come from the Antwerp World Diamond Centre, and fled the airport with the loot!
No shots were fired and no one was hurt.
Law enforcement apparently don't know where the newly rich dudes/dudettes are hiding out, but they describe the thieves as "professionals" and the diamonds as "rough stones" so who knows if they'll ever get caught!!
Was it an inside job? Was it a group of crazed Rihanna fans looking to shine bright like a diamond?
UR guess is as good as ours!
