In a stealthy heist reminiscent of a Hollywood movie, jewels valued at up to £3 million ($3.9 million) were stolen from the booth of Geneva-based jeweler Boghossian at London’s Masterpiece Art Fair.

Officials believe the theft took place overnight between 5 p.m. on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, according to the Evening Standard. But given that the fair didn’t close until 9 p.m. on Tuesday night, police are not ruling out the possibility that the theft took place while the fair was open to the public. Investigators believe that the theft was the work of professionals who may have employed distraction techniques to steal the precious stones. There were no witnesses.
