THIEVES TRY TO REACH GOLD UNDER RUBBLE    

  Gold hasn't lost its allure to theives, either.  From an article   
  posted November 2nd, 2001 on the web site of Britain's   
  Telegraph newspaper  (http://www.portal.telegraph.co.uk/):    

  "EVIDENCE of a daring but failed heist from vaults beneath   
  the collapsed World Trade Centre was revealed by police   
  yesterday as workers removed gold and silver valued at   
  159 million.    

  Scorch marks around the basement door to the vaults   
  suggested thieves had tried to break in to steal the   
  precious metals, belonging to the Bank of Nova Scotia.    

  The bank denied there was any heist attempt, but police   
  insisted that at some time during the past fortnight, a   
  blowtorch and crowbar had been used on the vault's   
  entrance. After the discovery, a video camera was set up   
  to monitor the area.    

  Given the difficulty of getting on to the site and down to   
  the vault, it is suspected the attempt was an inside job.    

  Hundreds of construction and relief workers are working  
   on the World Trade Centre site."
