The hunt is on for the well-dressed thief who swiped $100,000 worth of jewelry from Tiffany's Fifth Avenue flagship yesterday. The suit and tie-sporting man waltzed into the store at 3pm Tuesday and asked a store employee to see two necklaces. Once the necklaces were on the counter, he distracted the clerk—who turned his back on the thief—and strolled out of the store, necklaces in hand.
Among the many questions swirling around the breezy heist: were either of the necklaces from the Gatsby collection?
