Thieves stole $280,000 in cash and valuables from a Brooklyn bank over the weekend. The most impressive part: They didn't even trigger an alarm. Police were only tipped off to the robbery at the HSBC branch in Borough Park when employees arrived on Monday and found a tunnel from the ceiling into the vault, reports the New York Times. Authorities—who found a hole in the roof, a ladder, and an opening in a chain-link fence behind the bank—say the bank was closed over the weekend, per the New York Daily News. No arrests have been made. (More bank robbery stories.)
