To go with 'Japan-crime-theft-history,FOCUS' by Shigemi Sato This picture, taken on December 4, 2012 shows the site where Japan's biggest-ever cash heist took place, netting the crook the equivalent of 3.6 million USD today, outside of the Fuchu prison in Tokyo. On a rainy morning in December 1968, a police motorcyclist screeched to a halt in front of a cash-laden Tokyo bank vehicle and ordered four men to get out, warning it was about to explode. The case left a mystery that remains unsolved 44 years later, having eluded some of Japan's top investigative minds. AFP PHOTO / SHIGEMI SATO (Photo credit should read SHIGEMI SATO/AFP/Getty Images)
