One Of The Most Insane Bank Robberies In U.S. History Happened Right Here In New Jersey
Bank robberies aren’t always big news; there are too many for every one to make headlines. According to the FBI, there were over 4,000 bank robberies in 2014 alone. Most involved masked men (or women) going up to tellers and demanding money…nothing out of the ordinary. However, some robberies really stand out. One example is the Banco Central Burglary in Fortaleza, Brazil; it involved months of deep tunneling and much of the money was never recovered. In total, over $70,000,000 was stolen. New Jersey doesn’t have anything at that level, but we do have some pretty crazy bank “robberies” in the Garden State.
We sure have had some strange bank robberies here in New Jersey, haven’t we? Can you think of one that stands out? We’ve also had some pretty horrific killers in the Garden State (including mafia hitmen and one of the most prolific serial killers in the world). To learn more about their crimes, click here.
