A robber took $16 million in diamonds from a jewelry store in Cannes, France, authorities said.

The man, armed with a handgun and a grenade, then “calmly escaped on foot,” Reuters reported. It’s not yet clear whether the grenade was genuine.

The robber initially posed as a customer before showing the gun an instructing two salespersons to open the jewelry cases, Reuters reported. The culprit wore sunglasses but otherwise did not hide his face, a prosecutor said.

No injuries were reported in the robbery.

Cannes is located on the French Riviera. The store is located within the city’s Croisette waterfront area.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
