Diamond Heist Stoppered: Employees keep cam, as thief steals computers.

"The manager explained that the company does not really deal in diamonds or precious metals..."

The Black Diamond headquarters in Salt Lake, USA were robbed by a man wielding an ice-axe earlier this month.

The man snuck in at night, seemingly under the impression that the company dealt with diamonds and other precious stones. When he discovered his mistake he collected various items including ice-screws and some computer equipment and fled.

He demanded the "the precious metals and the money" said the shift manager.
