Is there something in the water of the French Riviera?

Another jewelry heist took place overnight near the Cannes Film Festival, this time involving the loss of a "high value" necklace in the resort town of Cap d'Antibes. This is the second heist to take place during Cannes. Just last week, thieves snatched about $1 million worth of jewelry from a hotel, after making off with a safe ripped from the wall of the room.

Cannes is known for annually hosting the world's glitziest film festival. The locale is a destination for moguls and Hollywood's elite.
