Nick Cannon's fake assistant burgles bling

Nick Cannon's fake assistant burgles bling

(Yahoo!) - Nick Cannon has found himself at the center of a jewelry heist.

A person pretending to be the TV and radio host's personal assistant made off with a briefcase of bling from upscale retailer Fred Segal.

In what sounds like a bad movie plot, someone called Fred Segal's Santa Monica store identifying himself as part of the "America's Got Talent" host's inner circle. The man asked for an assortment of jewelry to be brought to a designated meeting spot — the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood — where Mariah Carey's husband would be waiting. However, when the store staffer arrived with the glittery gems, a man took the entire briefcase — and took off.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident, which occurred last month, to omg! on Monday. The rep said Cannon, 33, was not on the premises when the crime occurred — nor was he aware of it.

The store employee filed a grand theft report with police, meaning the price of the jewelry was in excess of $950. The Hollywood burglary division is currently investigating the case.

While a rep for the store has not yet responded to omg!'s request for comment about the theft, Cannon's publicist tells omg! his camp has "no comment at this time."
