Nick Cannon

Impostor Pulls Off Jewelry Heist

People in Nick Cannon's life have a problem with Glitter ... someone pretended to be part of Nick's posse and stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from Fred Segal.

Here's what happened.  A guy who called himself Michael called the Santa Monica store and said he worked for Nick, and, being the hubby of Mariah Carey, he needed some jewelry STAT.

Michael asked the woman from Fred Segal to meet him at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with the goods.  The woman obliged, put the jewelry in a bag and drove to the Hotel. 

A guy met the woman at the front door, but it wasn't Michael ... it was a guy claiming to be a security guard and dressed like one.  The guy apparently indicated he would take the goods up to Nick's room and come down with cash -- in order to avoid paying taxes.

You guessed it.  The woman gave the dude the goods and that was the last she saw of anyone.

The LAPD is on the case.

As for how much the jewelry is worth, let's put it this way.  You can't buy a pair of pants at that store for less than $300.

That seems like a type transaction that probably happened before legitimately and someone found out about how it happens and used it to their advantage.
Even so who just hands off abunch of jewelry to someone they don't know?

Whoever the girl was, theres a definite lack of thought process going on there. Actually most people who work at Fred Segal are dumb as ****.

More like a few hundred dollars, but with a 1200% Fred Seagal retail markup. What an opportunity to rid themselves the junk that wouldn't sell.

Hard to blame the criminals when it was just so easy. Why didnt the women come with her own security? Why would she hand off a suitcase full of jewels to a stranger? It was her responsibility to sell the jewlery she is a jewler right? What an idiot. No I don't believe it was an inside job. It was just smart people who knew how much people gush over celebs
