Five unique diamonds worth several million dollars was stolen at the exhibition of jewelry held in Basel, Switzerland.
Criminals were active in a group of four or five people. While three of them distracted the attention of the staff of the exhibition, their accomplices stole from the glass case of precious stones and left the scene.The loss was discovered a quarter of an hour. The pavilion was closed immediately on exit, but to find the perpetrators failed.
Each diamond is weighed at least 30 carats, which automatically makes theft one of the most “loud” this year.
