In 1986 … Valerio Viccei fled Italy (as he was wanted for committing 50 armed robberies) and arrived in London England.
The following year, he and accomplice, Parvez Latif walked into the KSDC and asked to rent a safe deposit box.
Once inside the vault, the men pulled out their pistols and overpowered the bank manager and his guards.
They hung a ‘closed’ sign on the front door while ushering a few more accomplices into the bank.
Ransacking the vault … the thieves fled with an estimated £60 million (nearly $200 million USD by today’s standards). Viccei then proceeded to hop on a plane headed for South America … with his riches in tow!
While in South America, Viccei began to pine over the Ferrari Testarossa he had left behind in England and decided to return and make arrangements to ship it to his new home.
Needless to say … not the best idea he ever had.
Upon returning to the UK, he was identified … captured … arrested … and sentenced to 22 years in jail!
Long story short … he was deported to Italy in 1992 to serve out the rest of his sentence.
In April 2000 … while on a day pass from prison … he was killed in a gunfight with police.
