The Lufthansa Job – 5 Arrests after 35 yrs

5 Arrests in 35yr Old Goodfellas Case

 

5 Arrests have been made in the Lufthansa job after 35 yrs.  This is the heist that was referenced in Goodfellas resulting in the deaths of most of the participants.

In the movie, Di Nero plays Jimmy Conway (Jimmy The Gent Burke in real life), who executes the biggest heist in US history.  Expecting to score $2 million, the haul is actually $6 million.

Rather than pay out the shares, Jimmy decides to whack most of the participants.

Here is the Wikipedia for Jimmy Burke:
