Police investigate robbery at Abbot Kinney Boulevard jewelry store

A masked man held up a jewelry store in Venice on Tuesday, simulating a handgun and putting his loot into a Starbucks bag before escaping on foot, police said.

The robbery occurred at 12:46 p.m. at Kamofie & Co., the same jewelry store in the 1300 block of Abbot Kinney Boulevard where actress Lindsey Lohan once got into trouble for shoplifting a necklace.

Los Angeles police officer Madison Drake said the thief was last seen heading southbound on foot from the store.

He said he was surprised that someone would hold up the shop “on a nice day like today (when Abbot Kinney) is full of people. It’s very trendy.”
