How did Theresa Tambunting, a 50-year-old from Scarsdale, somehow managed to steal approximately 833 pounds of gold ($12 million), in bar and jewelry form, from the jewelry manufacturer where she worked as a vault manager? Sources say she smuggled it out in the lining of her purse over six years. But that’s not the only question begging answers. She and her husband, a lawyer at Cantor Fitzgerald, were well compensated for their legitimate work, so why did she do it? How did she manage to hide all of that from her husband, who apparently had no idea about the theft, and their two children? Where did she put it?
My guess: right out in the open, because men aren’t very detail oriented. Makes sense. Maybe he didn’t notice her new hairstyle so she thought some classy Mr. T type chains would grab his attention? Just guessing.
