With all the hallmarks of a Hollywood movie, including the set, right near the Carlton InterContinental Hotel where Alfred Hitchcock filmed To Catch a Thief starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, was the scene of a daring jewelry heist. A thief left the Carlton hotel with a haul worth over $135 million, (originally estimated at less than half that). This comes just days after the Swiss police had announced that a member of the “Pink Panther” gang of jewel thieves had escaped from a prison in Switzerland. The gang is said to have hit hundreds of high-end boutiques all over the globe, making off with hundreds of millions of dollars in jewelry. I know it’s a crime, but as they go, it’s SO glam.
