The Bergdorf Goodman Jewelry Heist

In June 2012, a trio of thieves broke into the Bergdorf Goodman store in NYC and took "at least hundreds of thousands of dollars" in fine jewelry. One thief used a hammer to break into the store's glass door, another tried to block passersby from seeing what he was doing, and a third drove a getaway car.
