Huffington Post reported that "Rajesh Jain, a diamond wholesaler traveling on business, told police that he'd left a bag with loose jewels in it on the back seat of his rental car around 7 p.m. Jan. 14 while eating at a Sweet Tomatoes restaurant in Orlando, Fla.."

When Jain came back to his car from the Italian buffet, no diamonds were to be found.

Jain told the Sentinel that he did not see anyone following him when he pulled into the restaurant parking lot. He said that he will give a reward if the diamonds are recovered.

Let's hope the reward is more than a free buffet at Sweet Tomatoes.
