Two men were caught on video tape stealing a $260,000 diamond-encrusted necklace from a Hillsborough County, Florida, Sam's Club (Wal-Mart) warehouse store January 23, 2007. The necklace, 82-total-carat-weight, had pear-shaped diamonds. Hillsborough is the county seat for Tampa.
Police believe the suspects stole the necklace before the store closed for the night. Video shows one of the men entered the store with a hammer in his belt, and that both men changed their clothes in the store's restrooms before smashing the jewelry case and grabbing the necklace.
