PARIS — As the Chopard store on Place Vendôme remained shuttered Monday after a $9.2 million heist during the weekend, it was business as usual for neighboring jewelers on France’s Pentecost holiday, albeit with heightened security.
A lone man, who passed himself off as a customer to get through Chopard’s security door, raided the store Saturday afternoon, stealing jewels worth up to 6.5 million euros, or $9.2 million at current exchange, according to French police.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
