Police investigate jewellery thefts at Trump Tower

NEW YORK (AP) — Detectives are investigating reports of thefts of about USD350,000 worth of jewellery from residents in Manhattan’s Trump Tower.

The jewellery was allegedly stolen from inside two apartments in the building where President Donald Trump owns a penthouse triplex, police said.

A 33-year-old woman told police her USD117,000 Graff diamond bracelet was taken from her 59th floor apartment after she left for vacation on September 3.

A 67-year-old woman reported five pieces, including a Harry Winston diamond bracelet, a ring, necklace and bracelet — all encrusted with diamonds and sapphires — and a pair of diamond and emerald earrings, stolen from a drawer in her 42nd floor closet, police said

The items reportedly disappeared between June 21 and September 9.

A police spokesman told The New York Times that investigators haven’t identified a suspect and are looking at everyone with access to the building.

Trump plans to stay at his penthouse Sunday night. He’s to deliver a speech at the United Nations General Assembly today.
