      He got off because they had no evidence of his direct involvement in perpetrating the crime and no paintings. His involvement was after the fact. This is Swedish law. Had either been true, he'd have gone to jail. The others did not have that luxury. They were connected by evidence to the actual theft. Had this occurred in the US the lawyer would have been convicted and seen 5 to 10...because he cannot do that. He could represent a client who wanted to return the paintings without payment. He cannot act as a broker for their return upon payment.
      Here's the stupid part. They should have gone to the insurer of the paintings. Rather than payout for their loss... 30 million...they give the person who "recovered" them 10 to 20 percent. Here, 3 to 6 million. Not bad. And the insurer will never tell the police anything because they rely on stolen items being returned. If the insurer always rats, then no thief would ever trust them...they'd be stuck making the full payout...for every theft. Very bad for business.

    200,000 Krona is about 25,000 USD in 2005. Imagine going through the trouble of setting up a heist involving 30+ people, stealing art worth over $30million, sitting on it for 5 years while it all goes tits up because someone used their actual phone number, then finally finding a buyer, then selling it for less than Toyota.

      @Erika McQueen Yeah, people sometimes assume ALL Scandinavian prisons are like that but it's mainly just their minimum security that's like this. They have maximum security prisons like anywhere else too, they're more secure even if they are still much nicer than the average maximum security prison. In articles and shows about Scandinavian prisons they usually share photos of minimum security even when they're talking about maximum security.
      People also tend to forget that there are minimum security prisons in the US that are the same way. When my dad was in prison on a petty drug offense he was on work release so he left prison all day, got to go wherever he wanted (construction worker), and then return before curfew but due to traffic and such he could arrive a bit late so long as someone let the prison know where he was and when he'd arrive. There are also prisons in the US that have the same security as the average school yard: a couple of guards, an average fence, and a simple gate but few escape since they dont want to be transfered to a higher security place, lose privileges, and have time added to their sentence.

    One of the cars that were used to distract the police were stolen from my step-father, whom I finally got to show this video for as he's been locked in Portugal due to Corona. He claimed they only set it on fire, but he loved the presentation and has become a fan on the channel! Due to how long it took to solve the case proper, he forgot all about it until I brought it up to him now... so it took almost 20 years but now he's laughing over the idiocy of the guys that stole his car

      I remember reading about this, if I'm not mistaken, it was attempted to be stolen like 3 times, at least once successfully, it's like buying alcohol when you're underage, you just look really confident as if you own the goddamn place, glance around as if bored, barely check out people with no eye contact, and just be 100% swag and 0% nervous. Then, nobody asks any questions. Only difference is, if someone asks for an ID you can just say "oh I left it at home, nevermind" and no biggie, while if they catch you stealing a painting, I think that takes a bit more of steel balls.

      I'm a big fan of the Antwerp diamond heist.
      After months of reconnaissance, a group of 5 thieves performed a genuine Ocean's Eleven-style heist and stole $100 million USD worth of jewelry from the vault of a diamond trading house, using tricks like duplicating keys based on pen-camera footage and disabling thermal sensors with clear hairspray. They left virtually no evidence behind. So how were they caught?
      They gathered all of the evidence into trash bags, and the guy who was supposed to burn them just chucked them into the forest instead. The landowner gave the trash to the police and they found receipts with the real name of one of the men on it. He refused to give up the names of the rest of the gang and served a total of 8 years in prison. Most of the jewels were never recovered.

      @Fox Buns The vast majority of stolen art ends up in the hands of private collectors who aren't shy about showing it off to their social circles. You're falsely assuming a group of amoral art snobs have any reason to report their friends and associates to the police, let alone when they themselves are statistically likely to also be involved in the same kind of illegal activity and use the same criminal networks and contacts. They'd be burning bridges and incriminating themselves for literally no reason or gain.

    Something similar happened recently.
    A bank was clearing all it's valuables and hauling it to an offshore bank. Every employee, and guard left the bank but kept the security systems up and the front of the bank was locked down tighter than the Seirre Madre of absolute pain. Someone that following night broke into the bank quite easily: for you see while they locked down the main entrance, there was a maintenance tunnel connecting the garage to the rest of the bank. Person broke in via the now unguarded maintenance tunnel and into the bank armed to the teeth...
    was pissed...
    Why was he pissed? He thought there would be valuables there. So he did something radicicolous and sundance reject worthy. He shot out every possible window, bashed open every ventilation cover with a baseball bat, smashed the keypads on the vaults, broke every window, shot out every TV, cut cable lines, broke the hinges off every door, bashed executives worthless yet pretty paintings off their walls: anything he could access he destroyed, and to end it? He shot all the cameras watching him until that point.
    The next day the bank agents came back to see the place in tatters, the bank had to get $5.7M spent to fix or replace everything. Guess where this all took place?
    Somewhere very special and known for insane hijinks like this...

    15 min before closing time my mom and my little brother went to the toilet close to the entry. My little sister, 19 at the time, waited at the lobby. In comes a guy without mask, like normal dude. Except the guy went straight to the stairs leading to 2nd floor and stopped in the middle of the stairs and STARED at my sister before he went up.
    Then, 2 guys with ski masks and AK-47s came in started yelling get down etc. At this moment my mom and my brother came out of the toilet and were held at gunpoint.
    My dad and my youngest brother were at this moment at the other end of the museum getting coats or smthn. My brother told my dad that there were men with guns. My dad just said ”Naah, it’s nothing” and didn’t do anything. 😀
    Then the dude who went upstairs at the beginning came down with the paintings and all of them went out and to the boat. My family was kept secret from the media since they were witnesses. And yeah, they had blown the two car bombs to distract cops.
    Funny thing is that I didn’t want to go with them to Stockholm because I thought it was going to be boring. I stayed at my parents drinking with my friends. 😀 I live in Finland and have visited Stockholm multiple times.
    They called me after it happened and little brother said that ”We saw a robbery” and I thought they saw some kiosk robbed or smthn. 😀 But next day when I saw the headlines I kinda panicked, since I thought they were mafia or pros anyway and they had escaped. AND my sister had seen the face of one of them.
    I don’t know exactly why they did not have to go to the court to testify, but they gave statements. I remember later seeing the papers at my moms house when they sentenced one of the guys, Vladimir Petrov, for 6 years if I remember right.
    Kids, moral of the story is: Do stuff with your family, it might be more exciting than you think!

    When the Mona Lisa was stolen, the guy just walked up to it and took it off the wall and hid it under a jacket. He tried to exit out of a side door but it was locked.
    By then an employee came by and saw a guy in a trench coat holding a framed painting trying to get out.
    The guard unlocked the door for him and let him out.
    Nobody noticed the Mona Lisa was stolen for something like 2 or 3 days, when an artist who wanted to paint a copy complained, and a bored guard went searching. Only then they realized it's gone.
    That's why it's behind inches of glass now.
