Nine Victoria Crosses stolen.

The nine Victoria Crosses were taken from inside locked, reinforced glass cabinets, that were guarded by alarm systems and security cameras, in a theft that's wiped out nearly half of New Zealand's collection. The most significant medal taken in the heist belonged to Charles Upham. Only three people in history have won the Victoria Cross twice, and Upham is the only one to win them both for combat.
