Modern Day Stagecoach theft!

Educational Fact: While it has been a long time since there was a stagecoach robbery to steal the Wells, Fargo and Co. strongbox, Wells Fargo is still going strong and criminals are still targeting its valuables. In January 2015, the Wells Fargo corporate museum in San Francisco was targeted by 3 thieves that rammed an SUV thru the glass entranceway, held a security guard at gunpoint, and broke into a glass display case holding gold nuggets from the Forty-Niner days! While the stolen nuggets are valued at about $10,000 -their sentimental value aside- damage to the entrance was estimated at more than $200,000. Two iconic red and yellow company stagecoaches on display were undamaged in the heist.
