Thieves snatch Swedish crown jewels in daylight heist

Thieves snatch Swedish crown jewels in daylight heistThe thieves, who have not been identified, and the jewels are being sought internationally via Interpol, Swedish police spokesman Stefan Dangardt said, noting the objects were a “national treasure” and would likely be “very difficult to sell”. The gold burial crowns from 1611 belonging to King Karl IX and his wife Queen Christina were originally interred with the couple but were later exhumed and had been on display in a locked glass cabinet in Strangnas Cathedral, located 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Stockholm. King Karl IX’s crown is made of gold and features crystals and pearls, while Christina’s is smaller and made of gold, precious stones and pearls.

'It's 1-0 to them right now,' Swedish police admit, as hunt begins for crown jewel thieves 

'It's 1-0 to them right now,' Swedish police admit, as hunt begins for crown jewel thieves A major manhunt was underway in Sweden on Wednesday as police scrambled to track down a pair of thieves who robbed the country’s crown jewels in broad daylight before escaping on a speed boat. In a daring heist reminiscent of Blake Edwards’ Pink Panther films, the crowns of King Karl IX and Queen Kristina, as well as a royal orb, were snatched from Strängnäs Cathedral by two men on Tuesday around lunchtime. Police raided two locations in Strängnäs on Wednesday but admitted they were struggling to find any clues. “It’s 1-0 to them right now,” police spokesman Thomas Agnevik told Swedish reporters. “It is not possible to put an economic value on this, it is invaluable items of national interest.” The 1611 gold burial crowns belonging to King Karl IX and his wife Queen Christina were originally interred with the couple but were later exhumed and had been on display in a locked cabinet in the cathedral, 60 miles west of Stockholm. Another police spokesman, Stefan Dangardt, said Interpol had been brought in to help apprehend the jewel thieves, along with Swedish helicopters and canine units. Peter Sellers in The Pink Panther “Several people were seen leaving the church by boat or water scooter after the theft. We have spoken to witnesses, but we are interested in further information from anyone that has made any observations,” he added. Tom Rowsell, who was having lunch outside the cathedral where he is to be married this weekend, told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet he saw two men dash from the building toward a motorboat waiting on Lake Malaren. “I saw a white little boat with an outboard motor on the back. The two men hurriedly jumped on board and it sped off,” he said. “I knew immediately they were burglars, because of the way they were behaving,” he added. The police have issued vague descriptions of the thieves: one is said to be skinny and wearing a light beige jacket with dark long pants. The other is roughly six feet tall, heavier, and was wearing a dark jacket It is not the first time robbers have whisked away the jewels of European royalty. In 2013, King Johan III’s burial regalia was stolen from Vasteras Cathedral. It was recovered several days later in a garbage bag left on a a countryside road, following an anonymous tip. Britain’s own crown jewels were nearly stolen in 1671 by Anglo-Irish Colonel Thomas Blood, who was captured as he fled the Tower of London with St Edward’s Crown, the Scepter with the Cross, and the Sovereign’s Orb.
