    Sounds like an insider was helping out. I have shopped at Samuels for years and the employees know me. They never leave me alone with merchandise and only one item out of the case at a time. Bet the employee knows or is kin to the thieves.

    Why in the world would you turn your back on someone holding a tray of jewelry worth 50.000 dollars duhhhhhhh.Most jewelry stores will only let you look at 1 item at a time.
