MORE LONDON JEWEL THEFTS: A De Beers boutique and Omega boutique located in London’s financial district were both hit by a burglary Saturday night, during which thieves stole items with an estimated retail value of 380,000 pounds, or $596,000 at current exchange rates. The City of London police said Monday that the four suspects, wearing hooded tops and balaclavas, arrived at the gated Royal Exchange shopping courtyard in a red BMW around 10 p.m. Saturday, and then broke through padlocked gates before attacking the windows with sledgehammers. They then left in the same car. Detective Chief Inspector Steven Chandler of the City of London Police major investigations team said, “We are currently following a number of lines of enquiry, and I can reassure the public that every effort is and will be directed to bringing those responsible to justice.” De Beers said the company is “working closely” with the police and that its three other London stores remain open for business.
The incident comes weeks after four men convicted of robbing London’s Graff Diamonds on Old Bond Street of $64 million worth of jewelry last year were sentenced to a collective 71 years in prison.
