Seems like something out of a cartoon or even bad movie - Burglars in Berlin, Germany  dug a 30 meter (100 ft) tunnel under a bank and robbed it.

According to police - the heist took some time, upwards of of months, to complete with the length of the tunnel. One source said it looked "very professional" as it was elaborately constructed with ceiling supports. The tunnel led to the bank from an underground garage.

The robbery was reported on January 14th when a security guard noticed smoke coming from the bank deposit room. The thieves set fire to the room as a way to cover their tracks.

Police are still in the process of working out details of what is missing from the deposit boxes and damages to the bank.
