Robbers drill through wall in Paris bank heist

Robbers drill through wall in Paris bank heist

Security officials and police say robbers bored through an underground wall into a bank vault in central Paris, tied up a security guard for hours and made off with loot from private safe boxes.
Police said Tuesday the thieves entered through a neighboring cellar and broke into the boxes at the LCL bank branch. They set fire to the safe room before fleeing.
An investigation was under way to determine the details and the total take from the heist overnight Saturday to Sunday in a touristic area near the gilded Opera Garnier.
