NICE, France (Reuters) - Robbers stole 40,000 euros' ($53,000) worth of jewelry from safes in guests' rooms at a luxury hotel on the French Riviera, police said on Saturday, continuing a string of heists on the Cote d'Azur.
Two safes were raided at the five-star Grand Hotel in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and the robbers tried others without success, police said. Identity papers were also stolen.
Last weekend, an armed robber stole jewelry worth $136 million (102 million euros) from a hotel in Cannes, in France's largest gem heist.
