LONGWOOD — A jewelry store on Southern Boulevard was cleaned out of more than $200,000 worth of baubles over the weekend, including the type of chains worn by rapper 50 Cent.

Among the loot taken from G+G Jewelry, at 999 Southern Blvd., on April 13, were watches, diamond bracelets, diamond crosses, diamond earrings and chains, including a type that can sell for as much as $35,000.

Manager Mike Khan was in the store with two customers and a security guard around 11 a.m. when he said a masked robber came in holding a gun and demanded some of the store’s most expensive items.

The thief threatened to shoot the people in the store, saying he was going to "blow their heads [off]," Khan said.
