To Catch A Jewel Thief : Tiffany Jewellery, New York

We couldn't believe our ears this weekend when we were told of the ex Tiffany executive arrested over the theft of $2.1million worth of jewels! 

The lengthy inside operation was conducted by Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, who left the company back in February after fulfilling the role of vice president of development. It took over 4 months for Tiffany & Co to discover there were items unaccounted for after being signed out by Lederhaas-Okun. 

Apparently they don't conduct daily inventories on items worth less than $25,000.. a mere $10,000 piece simply slipped under the radar... 210 times!?

By the time she was arrested, she had already sold the majority of her loot, which included diamonds and gold. 

We think it's time the American company tweek their inventory policies. 

And as for the jewel thief? ..She has up to 10 years in prison and a mountain of fines to look forward to. This story is kinda movie worthy.. don't you think?

News of the Cannes jewel theft has also just broken. They do say these things come in 3's.. although we think the Bijoux Bazaar vault is safe for now ;)
