Justin Bieber fans forked over lots of money Sunday in at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. A few hours later, thieves made off with a pretty good chunk of it.
The New York Daily News reported it was a heist out of an action film. The suspects reportedly lowered themselves on ropes through a hole that was made by chiseling at a double-thick wall leading into the room where the money was kept.

The stadium was on lockdown Monday, while police investigated how the thieves escaped undetected. Authorities said the robbery was carefully planned and executed, probably an inside job that began several days before. Reports say fake security guard certifications to work at the stadium could be purchased easily for about $850.
"You could have very good people, and then the last 50 of 300 or 400 guards are simply just bodies," he said. "This is a concern that we continuously address," said the stadium's manager, Jacques Grobbelaar.
Investigators are reportedly focusing on stadium security prior to the show, as well as a Bon Jovi concert the venue recently hosted.
No word on exactly how much money was taken.
