CHICAGO (CBS) — A Loop jewelry store was the victim of a diamond theft over the weekend.

WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports Ultra Diamonds, at 17 E Monroe St., in the same building as the Palmer House Hilton, was the target of the theft.

A manager declined to comment, but police said a man was in the store Sunday and took off with merchandise without paying. An initial report said a piece of diamond jewelry worth several thousand dollars was stolen.
