A 60-year-old French woman who posed as a diamond expert and entered a luxury London jeweler to steal seven precious gems in an elaborate daylight heist has been jailed for five and a half years, police said. Lulu Lakatos, who was part of an internationally organized crime gang, visited the Boodles store in London in March 2016 and played the role of a gemologist sent to inspect seven diamonds worth $5.8 million on behalf of a wealthy Russian investor. But Lakatos, who pretended she couldn’t speak English in order to buy herself time in the store, placed a bag filled with the diamonds into her handbag and replaced it with another bag filled with pebbles.
