Image from CCTV on the attack by on the Millennium Star diamond at the Millennium Dome 7 November 2000. Four men were found guilty at the Old Bailey in London of plotting to carry out the robbery. * 22/12/02: Image from CCTV on the attack by on the Millennium Star diamond at the Millennium Dome 7 November 2000, which came 10th in a Top 10 list of arrests by British police. The Millennium Dome Robbery, the final entry in the Top 10, would have been the biggest heist of all time, had officers from the Met s Flying Squad not foiled the plan. A gang of four had plotted to steal priceless diamonds from the Dome s Money Zone, but officers were on their trail - knowing of the scheme they replaced the diamonds with fakes. More than 100 officers were at the Dome to greet the gang when they smashed in using a JCB. The Top 10 list, released to coincide with the 110th birthday of Police Review, was compiled by Jan Berry, chairman of the Police Federation, Rick Naylor, vice president of the Superintendents Association, and Police Review staff.
