Lloyds Offers $1 Million Reward for Info on Harry Winston HeistDecember 09, 08
Secondary insurer Lloyds of London is offering a large reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the recovery of jewelry stolen from Harry Winston in Paris last Thursday, AP reported Tuesday. The value of the stolen goods is estimated at €85 million ($108 million).
The exact reward would be determined according to the value of recovered jewelry.
Four gunmen, three of them dressed as women, walked into the Harry Winston store on Thursday, just before closing time. With customers in the store and Christmas shoppers passing right outside its door, the four made off with one of the biggest loots in history.
The same store was robbed a year ago. The reward offered at the time did not lead to arrests.
