The moment thief steals $97K worth of 47th Street Diamond District jewels

Surveillance footage from inside a Diamond District store shows just how easy it is to swipe tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry.
At Rafaello & Co. on West 47th Street near Sixth Avenue, the thief is caught on tape simply waiting until no one was watching.
He then reaches around the corner of the counter to grab 19 diamond bracelets worth a total of $97,000 from the display, which was open in the back, police said Tuesday.
The grab occurred July 30, but the video was just released, showing the thief wearing black pants, a back shirt and a backpack.
The suspect has not been identified by police and is still at large, cops said.
