I learned on “Storage Wars” that any safe, no matter how big. can be broken into in a matter of minutes.

From what I've seen on tv, movies and read in the NYT, a 9mm semiautomatic with a high capacity magazine will blow the door to Ft. Knox open.

Is there a chance that this is drug money?

It was Colonel Mustard. I think the police should ask questions to people who had access to the house. The LAPD will be looking into this because of the amount of money and jewels that was taken.

I am definitely sure the insurance company handling the Homeowners insurance policy will be asking questions if the owners file a claim.

I was thinking about this brand which was mentioned on a previous thread about safes.

Well the time depends on where the safe is located. A large one with good door hinges that is bolted to a slab inside a closet or narrow corner is going to take a while longer. The worst case estimate on mine is around an hour with the right tools.

$10 milion dollars is a lot of money, to nearly everybody, to have on hand...

Is there a chance that this is drug money?

It wasn't even claimed to be just money. It was supposedly jewelry, cash and "other items".

I am going to bet that it is a scam and after some period the jewelry, actual value far less than claimed, will be sold.

The insurance company will do its best to wiggle out of this, and may well discover fraud.
