Lulu Lakatos - Diamond Thief

Lulu Lakatos posed as gemmologist 'Anna' when she swiped a whooping £4.2m in jewels. While Lakatos was jailed for five-and-a-half years for the heist, her two female associates, as well as the diamonds, remain missing. CCTV footage shows the moment Lakatos swiped the gems under the noses of staff at jeweller Boodles. At the crucial moment, the Romanian pulled off an astonishing sleight of hand, swapping the jewel-laden purse with a precise replica weighed down with pebbles. She and her international gang fled the UK for France less than three hours later.
