Mag Mile $100K Jewelry Heist a Hoax

  • Written by The Chicago Defender
  • Published in Chicago

    Detectives on Thursday night said a report of a brazen robbery on Michigan Avenue a day earlier was unfounded.

    A south suburban woman who said she frequents shops on the Magnificent Mile told police she was robbed of tens of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. But Chicago police say they recovered video from the area and confronted the woman, who asked that her name not be publicized, about inconsistencies in her story.

    "It appears as though she wasn't carrying jewelry. People make mistakes. She's not crazy but she called us and told us this didn't happen," a Chicago police sergeant told NBC Chicago. "She had a bad day. We reviewed every single piece of video we could find and saw nothing. It didn't sound right."
