details are still emerging from the heist police believe that the thieves fled the scene in an Audi A6 sedan — and that an identical vehicle was later found on fire in an underground parking lot.
“One of the museum’s best-known treasures, the 41-carat Dresden Green Diamond, happened to be away on loan to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art at the time of the break-in,” Schmitz says. “Other exhibits include a table-sized sculpture of the Indian royal court made of gold, silver and precious stones, as well as a golden coffee service by an 18th-century court jeweler.”
