Los Angeles native YG claims he was robbed of nearly $400,000 in jewelry on New Year’s Eve. The reported incident took place in London between 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and 11 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The California native said the jewelry was inside of a briefcase and placed on top of a safe inside of his hotel room. When he went to check the briefcase on New Year’s Day, it appeared to be lighter than usual. However, he allegedly did not get around to reporting the incident until January 6th.
After the incident was reported, authorities launched an investigation into the matter. At this time, they are looking into surveillance footage at the hotel. Unfortunately, they are having difficulty identifying a suspect at the moment because there were multiple coming in and out of the room on the holiday evening.
YG has not issued a public statement regarding this matter. Authorities will continue to investigate the crime moving forward.
