29 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, which is surrounded by stores like Dior, Chanel and Valentino, was the scene of one of the boldest jewelry robberies ever carried out earlier this week. 

The Harry Winston store was hit for the second time in a little over a year; this heist netted the thieves approximately $100 million worth of gems. The first theft in October 2007 was of merchandise worth $40 million.

There has been a large increase in the number of bank and shop holdups, but one of the stranger aspects of this robbery was the report that at least two of the thieves were wearing women’s clothing and wigs. The bold theft took place in broad daylight at gun point. Stats for Thieves Dressed in Drag Trending: Older & Chilly
