With just one week until the famous film festival kicks off, Cannes was once again been hit by what has become an almost annual crime: a high-end jewellery heist. In a sting which is estimated to have taken no longer than 10 minutes, four armed men seized at least €1 million worth of jewels from a Cartier store that has become one of the city’s prime targets for thieves. Taking place on May 5 at 11am in full view of a busy thoroughfare and the most serious of 18 robberies reported on the Croisette this year alone, it is a less than ideal way to begin next week’s festivities making one of this year's yachts at Cannes the safest place to be.
