Harry Winston Paris Robbed of €50M Jewellery

Harry Winston

in Rue Montaigne, Paris - the jewellery store to the rich and famous has been robbed of an estimated €50M worth of diamonds and jewellery yesterday. Apparently the thieves took the lot - everything on display plus pieces in the vaults.

The three robbers even knew the names of some of the shop's employees and knew exactly where to look to find jewels that were not on display. Inside Job anyone?

Harry Winston's Paris store was knocked off almost a year ago on a Saturday morning when armed robbers stole an estimated €10 million worth of valuables.

A $2.8 million diamond was part of the haul in that raid. It was one of the largest jewelry thefts ever so I'm guessing this heist will eclipse it. Perhaps it's the same gang?
