Capers and heists are alive and well in the Internet age.

Just last year, a hacker stole more than 4,000 Bitcoins from the cloud. You may remember thieves stole $50 million worth of diamonds in Belgium, by driving onto the tarmac at the airport in Brussels and intercepting a shipment.

Tim Fernholz, reporter for Quartz, dutifully chronicled the biggest capers and heists of 2013

Tim’s favorite heist of 2013? $26,000 worth of Pappy Van Winkle artisinal whiskey. “[That theft] hits near and dear to my heart, as a lover of bourbon,” Fernholz says. “This was Pappy Van Winkle’s 20-year-old aged bourbon, which of late in the United States, as had this very big resurgence in popularity. $900 dollars a bottle on the secondary market.” Fernholz added he doesn't think it'll be recovered anytime soon.
