It was considered the biggest bank robbery in the history of Northern Ireland's existence. They bombarded the homes of two of the Bank's senior executives and forced them to help them access the vault. The money that was stolen was to be delivered to other local bank branches. Authorities at the Northern Ireland bank refused to comment claiming their initial priorities lie with the affected staff.
A gang of crafty thieves have pulled off the biggest bank heist in Northern Ireland's history. They got away with the equivalent of $48 million Cdn after kidnapping the families of at least two bank executives.

Authorities said the gang stormed the homes of two Northern Bank executives in Belfast on Sunday.

They then forced the senior managers to help them access the vault Monday night after the offices closed.

Another major bank robbery. Nearly 50 million dollars gone. Who commits crimes of this nature? People who are completely heartless. Why do crimes of this nature take place? Because some people cannot be satisfied with what they already have. Because evil people are filled with greed, rage, and a devilish mentality. How could the bank not be primarily concerned about the amount of money stolen? The biggest question is, "Will the bank robbers be found?" How did they do such a great job of getting away without a trace? How did they know where the bank executives lived? War, Crime and Corruption--will it ever end?

Oh, gee I feel so bad for the bank. Someone has redistributed their wealth - how dare such simple minions go up against the system.

Another words. Big deal - it's not the end of the world, if nobody was killed no real harm was done. A few guys get to live high on the hog until they get caught - and they will likely get caught.

Dont worry to much for the bank the money is all insured. I have to say Im amazed that people can pull of such a big hiest. Now comes the hard part for them not spending large amounts of money many people screw this up and get caught.
