Report: Teen Girl Pulled off $4 Million Hong Kong Diamond Heist

Police say they are searching for four diamond thieves after the theft of a diamond necklace
worth more than $4.6 million in Hong Kong, Agence France-Presse
reports. One of the thieves is reportedly a girl between 12 and 14 years
old.

The three adults posed as “big spenders” to distract the shop’s employees, an unnamed police source told the South China Morning Post.

Meanwhile, the girl stole a key to open the cabinet containing the
necklace—”embedded with more than 30 diamonds totalling about 100
carats,” the Post’s source said—and lifted it off the display bust.

The other thieves, two women and one man, are all estimated to be
aged between 30 and 40 years old. The four reportedly remained in the
shop for about a half-hour before leaving without buying anything.
