On March 16, Netflix will release a new documentary tv show about one of Brazil’s most spectacular heists. Heist: The Great Heist of Brazil’s Central Bank reconstructs the famous robbery of the Central Bank of Brazil, located in Fortaleza, in the state of Ceará, with never-before-seen testimony from cops and criminals, as well as an abundance of historical material. Robbers broke into the bank’s vault in August 2005, utilizing an 80-meter-long tunnel, and made off with more than 160 million reais—nearly 3.5 tonnes of cold, hard cash.
The documentary recreates crucial events from the cat-and-mouse game between the burglars and the federal police throughout a five-year investigation in three parts, each lasting 50 minutes. It was one of the largest bank robberies in Brazil’s—and the world’s—history. Surprising details about the theft, as well as its sad effects, are revealed in the show. It appeared like the ideal crime, but it was succeeded by extortion, kidnappings, and killings, causing even the burglars to believe the money was cursed.
Daniel Billio wrote and directed Heist: The Great Robbery of Brazil’s Central Bank, which was produced by Mixer Films for Netflix. Rodrigo Astiz also served as general director, and Claudia Belfort oversaw the investigation. Executive producers are Adriana Marques, ris Sodré Mendes, and Mauricio Hirata Filho. Producing partners were Gavulino Filmes and Marcos Hardin.

Heist: The Great Robbery of Brazil’s Central Bank Season 2 Story
On Saturday, August 6, 2005, a group of robbers tunneled into the bank and removed five containers of 50-real notes weighing around 3.5 tonnes and valued at R$164,755,150 (roughly 71.6 million USD at the time of the theft). The funds were uninsured, according to a bank representative, since the risks were too low to support the insurance rates. The robbers were able to avoid or disable the bank’s interior sirens and sensors, and the break-in went unnoticed until the following Monday when the bank reopened for business.
The Brazilian central bank, Banco Central, oversees regulating the money supply. The cash in the vault was to be reviewed to see if it should be recirculated or thrown away. The notes were not numbered in any particular order, making it nearly hard to track them down.
“They worked for several months,” according to police. The landscaping operation has begun in March. They possessed high-tech equipment, including GPS, as well as math, engineering, and excavation expertise.” At the rented property, police discovered a pick-up vehicle with a Grama Sintética (Synthetic Turf) emblem. Both within the vault and on the unoccupied land, bolt cutters, a blow torch, an electrical saw, and other gear necessary to break through the concrete barrier were discovered. To avoid fingerprints, the property was coated in burnt lime.
