The Securitas depot robbery - U.K.'s Largest

The Securitas depot robbery was the largest cash robbery in British history. It took place on the evening of 21 February 2006 from 18:30 GMT until the early hours of 22 February 2006.

Several men abducted and threatened the family of the manager, tied up fourteen staff members and stole £53,116,760.

By 9 March police had recovered £19.7m as a result of various raids and searches. The rest remains unaccounted for.

The gang left almost £154m behind as they could not fit any more into their truck.

On 28 January 2008, the jury returned guilty verdicts on Stuart Royle, Jetmir Bucpapa, Roger Coutts, Lea Rusha and Emir Hysenaj. Seven men would be charged.
