In what can easily be described as the main plot for an Ocean’s Eleven spin-off, a group of men in New York City started off 2017 with a pretty nice pay raise. As the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, three men committed an almost ingenious $6 million jewelry heist as thousands of people celebrated the start of the new year right below. I can’t make this stuff up, bro. Caught all on video via surveillance cam, you can get a decent look at one of the robbers faces before they destroy the security surveillance cam.
According to CBS New York, the theft occurred at Gregg Ruth’s KGK Holdings, a jewelry wholesaler that specializes in rare pink and yellow diamonds, and located in Midtown Manhattan on the sixth floor of a nondescript office building. The men entered a building on W. 36th Street in Manhattan around 10 PM on New Year’s Eve, but waited until the stroke of midnight to break into KGK Holdings using a hammer and pry bar.
At this time NYPD believes this was an inside job. Stay tuned as more details come in during this investigation.
