“It was something that three individuals were able to carry off but not able to get inside a vehicle. So obviously, it was quite heavy,” said Capt. Patricia Sandoval of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The robbers got away with $1.5 million worth of jewelry, police said.
The rapper’s sister, who was not identified, was not physically hurt, but was shaken by the ordeal.
