HISTORIC BRINK’S ROBBERY ON THIS DAY IN 1950

On January 17, 1950, 11 men steal more than $2 million ($29 million today) 
from the Brink’s Armored Car depot in Boston,
Massachusetts. It was the
perfect crime—almost—as the culprits weren’t caught until January 1956,
just days before the statute of limitations for the theft expired.

The robbery’s mastermind was Anthony “Fats” Pino, a career criminal who recruited a group of 10 other men to stake out the depot for 18 months to
figure out when it held the most money. Pino’s men then managed to steal
plans for the depot’s alarm system, returning them before anyone noticed
they were gone.

On this day in 1954, the U.S. Senate voted to condemn Sen. Joseph
R. McCarthy for what it called "conduct that tends to bring the
Senate into dishonor and disrepute." The censure was related to McCarthy’s controversial investigation of suspected communists in
the U.S. government, military and civilian society.
