Robbers In Argentina Tunnel Into Bank, Loot Safe Deposit Boxes

Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 6:20 PM
I just heard about this on ABC News tonight:
In a heist that seems ripped from a Hollywood movie, thieves in Argentina tunneled into a bank on New Year's Eve, looting some 140 safe deposit boxes from the vault.

I’m not sure about Argentina’s bank insurance, but in the U.S., safe deposit box contents are not covered by the FDIC.

For other tips on safe deposit boxes (sometimes called safety deposit boxes), refer to this forum thread and this blog post
