Vacuum-wielding thieves siphon €500,000 from store safes

Sucks to be them

Top three mobile application threats

Thieves armed with little more than a drill and a powerful vacuum cleaner siphoned £60,000 out of a supermarket safe in France in what police said is the 15th such heist against the same store chain.

The burglars have made off with €500,000 by exploiting a flaw in the security system of Monoprix, the chain that has been targeted since 2006, The Sun reports. Once they get inside the premises, they drill a small hole in the "pneumatic tube" used to transport money from the checkout to the strong room. This allows them to raid a safe without ever having to break its locks.

"It is clearly time Monoprix addressed this loophole and changed the way it guards its money," police told The Sun. ®
