A 100-ft. tunnel, leading to a branch of the Berliner Volksbank in Berlin, Germany, was discovered earlier this month. It started from a nearby lock-up garage rented under a false name, and led to below the bank's vault. According to a German newspaper, Die Welt, the garage had been rented since February, 2012.
When the job was done, the robbers set fire to the tunnel, thereby destroying DNA and fingerprint evidence. The tunnel was discovered when a security guard saw smoke coming from the safety deposit area.
The construction of the tunnel had all the earmarks of a team of robbers who knew exactly what they were doing. It is believed that it took weeks, maybe months, of digging up dirt and cutting through concrete to complete the tunnel which was stabilized with beams and supports.
It is not yet known exactly how much in money and valuables was stollen. This robbery sure fits that old axiom "where there's a will, there's a way".
