EP 43 - The British Bank of the Middle East Heist

In January of 1976 a team of thieves descended upon a bank in the middle of a literal war zone to pull off the biggest bank heist in history. Armed with rifles, grenade launchers, and even mortar tubes, the thieves managed to empty the vault of the British Bank of the Middle East of at least $25,000,000 pounds (worth over $200,000,000 USD in today's money).  Pete is joined today by his good friend Rick Gideons of Fifty11 Media.  If you like this podcast, be sure to subscribe and follow us on social media at @ICanStealThat and rate and review the show on iTunes or wherever you cast your pods!  If you'd like to support the show financially so we can invest it back into making improvements, please consider joining our Patreon and get access to ad-free episodes and an exclusive sticker.
