The Many Faces of Crime
December 6, 2008 1:13 PM Subscribe
In one of the largest jewelry heists in history,
robbers -- at least two wearing women's wigs and dresses -- relieved a Harry Winston boutique of $108 million worth of diamond rings, necklaces, and watches. Despite criminal investigation teachings
that robbers "have better things to do with their money than to buy an array of masks and disguises" and will opt for functional attire, many thieves express themselves creatively and impractically through costumery, dressing as Dracula and Black Father Christmas, a tree, Greek prime ministers, clowns,
while others cover their faces with duct tape, cookie dough, drywall, and baking-flour-and-ketchup.
Minimalists just wear men's underwear
and women's thongs
on their heads.
