The Raid That Rocked The Met: Why Gun And Drugs Op On 6,717 Safety Deposit Boxes Could Cost Taxpayer A Fortune
October 24, 2009

The Finchley Road is one of the busiest thoroughfares heading out of London. It leads traffic north past Lord’s Cricket Ground and the multimillion-pound houses of some of the country’s richest hedge-fund managers all the way to the M1. At three in the afternoon it’s always pretty slow going, but on this particular summer Monday the traffic was almost at a standstill.

Police vehicles – both cars and menacing armoured trucks – jammed up two lanes.

She’d been asked by a friend to recommend a convenient and secure location for keeping some valuables. Dagny searched Yelp to find the phone number for U.S. Private Vaults, a Beverly Hills facility where she’d rented a safe deposit box since 2017. That’s when she saw the bad news.

“Permanently closed.”



Where is the least safe place to keep your property? The answer is in a safety deposit box.
