How These Jetsetting Thieves Who Stole Over $3M in Diamonds, Jewelry Were Caught

When Portland, Oregon police department Det. Eric McDaniel and Sgt. Brian Hughes began to interrogate a thief who had robbed a local jeweler, they had no idea they were about to learn that the con man would lead them to a nationwide crime spree masquerading as a shopping spree.

A pair of diamonds worth $150,000 were stolen in Dec. 2010 from the David Marguilis jewelry store in Portland, and it was three months later when police got a tip that identified one of the thieves as Victor Lupis.
