Known as one of the most successful jewel thieves in the world, Bill Mason stole comedian Phyllis Diller's precious gems not once, but twice. He also stole 00,000 from the Cleveland mob. Mild-mannered Kenyon College library employee David Breithaupt walked off with 0,000 worth of rare books and documents from the college.
