Jeweler Robbed of Nearly $1,000,000 in Merchandise at Veggie Grill


A major robbery went down yesterday in the back parking lot of Santa Monica's Veggie Grill when a New York jeweler, in town to make a few rounds, found himself surrounded by three masked men following his lunch there. The victim, whose car tire had apparently been punctured, was relieved of almost $1,000,000 in merchandise at gunpoint. Suddenly, seven-dollar options to go valet don't sound so unreasonable.
