The Burrowing Burglars

The Burrowing Burglars

By Unresolved Productions

On the morning of June 9th, 1986, employees at Hollywood's First Interstate Bank showed up for work, preparing for the long week ahead. However, they would discover that the bank's vault had been looted - not only of $172,000 cash, but dozens of security deposit boxes.

Whoever the culprits had been, they had burrowed through 100 feet of soil from a nearby sewer drain, and had drilled their way into the bank vault. Miraculously, they had done this without attracting any attention.

More than a year would pass with no activity from these bandits, until they struck again a little over a year later, in the same region. Then, they would come close to pulling off what investigator called the "crime of the century." However, to this day, they remain complete enigmas.
