At an international jewelry exhibition in Sydney, Australia, thieves managed to make off with over $1.1 million ($1.5 million AUS) in diamonds, despite the fact that there was very tight security. In fact, the police and security overseeing the transport and delivery of the stones were supposed to be some of the best and strictest in the world. The heist could be the biggest diamond theft ever in New South Wales. Over 500 uncut stones, of various colors and sizes, were stolen prior to their entry in the trade exhibition, but aside from the fact of the theft itself, organizers seem disturbed that no one can determine quite when they went missing.
