This is our first infographic, sent to us by Aldo Baker, http://www.safefromthestart.org/biggest-heists-infographic.  We know you will enjoy reading about some of the major robberies that happened in the U.S. during 2010, as well as elsewhere in the world.  It means we need to start thinking of better ways to keep things safe!  Thanks, Aldo!

From small home invasions to big heists, burglary is one of the most common crimes in the world. In fact, According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, one robbery occurs every 54 seconds. While a typical home invasion costs its victim an average of $1,268, a big-time heist could cost millions. Could you imagine losing over $300 million dollars? That is precisely what happened at the Gardner Museum in March of 1990. Check out the details of that heist, and 9 others in our infographic that details the circumstances surrounding 10 big-time heists that took place all over the world.
