Ring worth nearly $700,000 taken by savvy thieves
ROME — Police are trying to track down two men who stole a Cartier store's most expensive ring, but one thing is clear: the bilingual, elegantly attired thieves were savvy.
Without pulling a weapon, the two men walked off with a 500,000 euro ($693,000) diamond-encrusted ring Tuesday evening from Cartier's store on Via Condotti, a toney shopping street near Rome's Spanish Steps, police said.
Talk about messing up the 'Know Your Client' rule!
But I truly do feel sorry for the poor saleswoman who got totally bamboozled by these elegantly attired
gentlemen I mean cheeky thieves, speaking Arabic and French.
She probably thought that they were Saudi royals and that she was on to making the big sale of her year.
