are there any good heist themed games?

i'm looking for a game that attempts to model the mechanics of the
heist in the gameplay... in other words, i'm less interested in say a macro-economic trading game where the theme happens to be that you are trading loot that you "heisted" or whatever...

...I'm looking for games where the designer has tried to center the
gameplay around planning, breaking into, hacking into, ziplining into,
highly secured buildings and getting away with something...

...anyone know of anything like this?

Android: Netrunner, partly also Android: Infiltration.

I would also be interested in what other games people can dig up.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

We like Clue: The Great Museum Caper and think it fits what you are looking for nicely (it is very different from Clue so you can disregard that branding aspect of the name). You can find it for pretty cheap on eBay too.

There's always Ca$h 'n Gun$, which is about the aftermath of a heist. It's basically Reservoir Dogs, the game.

What about Merchants & Marauders? It has a lot of the elements you're looking for but it's a pirate game.

Gentlemen Thieves or Rogues to Riches might fit. I think Android: Infiltration is also a great suggestion.

If you don't mind PnP, look at Spree!

Thanks for all the replies! Several of these look quite promising.

I have this vague sense that there is a gameplay mechanic related to "Heisting" that hasn't been tapped into much... I'm not sure exactly
what it is, something between strategy, tacticasl planning and puzzle
solving... but some of these look quite promising... perhaps it's been
explored more than I realize

Thanks again for the suggestions!

There's a kickstarter game that got funded in October (not delivered yet) that might be up your alley if you can get your hands on a copy:

The Perfect Heist
