181 - The Loomis Fargo Heist

In 1997 cash handling company Loomis Fargo experienced the two largest cash robberies ever committed on American soil. It wasn't a great year!

The first was a crime of opportunity, the second was a more planned affair. And yet, it turned out to be the most ridiculous heist in history. Seriously, the stupidity of the crime is unbelievable and also hilarious.
