Historical Heists

On this page I will be adding history about some of the more notable vault and safe heists over the years. When I first began gathering my notes for this section I came across the “Safeman” website. I discovered that much of what I had planned to write was already covered on this website and with much more detail than I could have provided. The gentleman who runs this site helped test safes for years and he has consulted for Mythbusters TV show. He graciously allowed me to provide a link to his site.

While his site is an excellent place to get yourself started he does focus more on the UK safe cracking history. Stay tuned as I will be adding more stories about the history of safe cracking in the U.S. and other parts of the world. Until then, enjoy Safeman.org!
