Six Arrested for Jewel Heist in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – Six Uruguayans, including three women, were arrested for allegedly stealing jewelry worth $250,000 from an American couple in the resort city of Punta del Este, police said Monday.

The suspects include “relatives and people close to” the couple’s household staff, Maldonado police chief Juan Balbis said.

The resort cities of Punta del Este and Piriapolis are located within the limits of Maldonado.

The heist occurred early Saturday at a house located in the Jose Ignacio district near the vacation home of Colombian singer Shakira.

The property’s owner, who works in the securities business in New York, was at home when the robbery occurred, but he did not notice that the uninsured jewelry was missing until the next day.

The thieves broke into the house and stole the jewelry from a safe.

Investigators found that the safe was not damaged and the alarm had been disconnected. EFE
