A MASSIVE diamond heist heralds a new golden age of sexy crime, it has been claimed.
Thieves in Brussels cut a hole in a plane to steal gems worth $50m, just like something out of a film.
There is already widespread speculation that the escapade was masterminded by a handsome, bored billionaire playboy who just does it for the thrill, probably working with a team of incredibly attractive women.
Criminologist Roy Hobbs said: “Crime had gotten downright tawdry in recent years. It was all crack cocaine, tax avoidance and horrible murders.
“So it’s great to see criminals bringing back some classic panache.
“I know it’s basically armed robbery, but Hollywood teaches us that you have to cut robbers some slack if they do it in a cool way.
“I’ll bet the diamond mastermind is back in his private castle, having a sexually-charged game of chess with a beautiful FBI agent who’s falling under his spell.”
He added: “Clearly I should be rooting for the police, but they seem so dull by comparison, with their cheap suits and bumbling ways.”
