Dinnerset

they did something no one before or since had the guts to brazenly do… they stole the most valuable jewels while the wealthiest people were home, having dinner – or better yet a fancy dinner party – right under their hungry noses.

The Pennsylvania main line papers called them the Fat Cat Burglars - “Fat Cat please don’t come back, whoever you are,” the headlines would say - because they went after only the mega-wealthy of society and their mega mansions... the DuPonts, the Flaglers, the Macys, the Gimbels, the Wallaces of Reader’s Digest. The FBI called them The Travelling Trio as they chased them for decades up and down the East Coast and beyond.
