*The deal took years to plan. The mastermind rented a room in the building stating that he was a diamond merchant. He took three years to set up his identity as a respectable part of the community by hosting a wide variety of business individuals for small deals. His goal was to make his presence there are inconspicuous as possible so as to avoid detection.
*The mastermind is currently in prison, serving a 10 year sentence, but the diamonds were never found. He claims that they only stole $20 million and that many of the safe deposit boxes were empty when they arrive. He believes he and his team were set up to take the fall for an insurance fraud scam. Investigators don’t believe him. He was caught when one of his gang forgot to burn a garbage bag of evidence that pointed to him as a suspect.
