Dallas, TX & St. Louis, MO: Jewel Theft

A traveling dealer in Missouri and a diamond store manager in Texas, became the latest victims of robberies.

Between $400,000 and $500,000 in jewels were stolen from a salesman late Tuesday as he drove up to his hotel for the night.

The victim in the Kansas City case was from Israel, and he was approached by two men around 8 p.m. in the parking lot of a Courtyard by Marriott hotel. One assailant was armed with a handgun and demanded the goods. There was no description of the robbers in this case.

This morning in Dallas, Texas, a robber disguised as a FedEx delivery man stole $600,000 worth of diamonds from Select Diamond Company in the northern part of the city, according to the Dallas Morning News. The robber also took $100,000 worth of Rolex watches. This suspect rushed the door as he was granted entry and knocked out the store manager.
