Jewels Worth Millions Stolen In French Highway Robbery

Two supposedly high-security trucks transporting jewels worth millions of euros were relieved of their cargo by a gang of armed, masked robbers in a heist at a toll booth in the Yonne area in France.

French police are hunting up to 15 thieves involved in the commando-style operation just
after midnight on Tuesday.

No shots were fired and no one was injured as the thieves made off with an estimated nine million euros ($9.49 million) worth of booty.
