Hundreds of items were swiped in robberies between October 2010 and this January-designer watches, silver bars, coins, Tiffany jewellery and iPhones. Altogether, police say the stolen goods are worth millions of dollars.

The items have been catalogued in over 800 photos as police try to get them back to their rightful owners. You can see the photos here.
