Actress Jodie Turner-Smith's Jewelry Was Stolen From Her Hotel Room in Cannes

The jewelry of British actress Jodie Turner-Smith, a revelation of the "True Blood" series, was stolen from her hotel room in Cannes. Nice judicial police have opened an investigation.

The Judicial Police in Nice announced on Monday, July 12th, that during the Cannes Film Festival, Jodie Turner-Smith's jewelry was stolen. "The investigation is ongoing," a police source told AFP, confirming the information published by Nice-Matin and the Hollywood Reporter.

It was not immediately clear if the jewelry was bought by Jodie Turner-Smith or if it was lent to her by a famous brand, a common practice during the Cannes Film Festival, reports Le Figaro.

The theft was committed "on Friday in her hotel room, and the actress and her entourage contacted the police during the day," the source said, stressing that the value of the jewelry does not reach the tens of thousands of euros initially mentioned by the press and does not represent "a significant amount "compared to the amounts involved in the various previous events on the Cote d'Azur.
