The Boston area has had its share of famous robberies. When the Specs O’Keefe Gang walked away from the Brinks Company in Boston’s north end, with $2.7 million in January of 1950, it was at the time the biggest armed robbery in history. In 1980, a gang led by a former Boston police officer ripped open 500 safety deposit boxes at the Depositors Trust Company in Medford and made off with $1.5 million. Then there was the $500 million Gardner Museum art heist in 1990. And if you follow Red Sox baseball, you’ll never forget the Valentine’s Day caper pulled off by Scott Boras in February of 2007. On that day he strong armed Boston’s front office into paying $70 million for the services of J.D. Drew for the next five seasons.
