Burglars broke into Jodie Turner-Smith‘s hotel room in Cannes, France on July 9 and robbed the actress of valuable jewelry, including her mother’s wedding ring.

Turner-Smith was in town for the premiere of her film After Yang. She was eating breakfast at the time the burglars broke into her room at the Marriott hotel and stole jewelry worth over $12,000.

On July 11, she shared a tweet, saying, “Didn’t think I would be spending 2.5 hours in the police station on my final day in Cannes, but here we are…”

Turner-Smith was moved to a different hotel – the Majestic – a few blocks away from the Marriott with higher security which accompanied her everywhere. Concerns about the actress increased since she was with her one-year-old daughter, whom she shares with her husband Joshua Jackson.

It has been speculated that the actress may have been targeted after she was seen wearing items from Gucci on the red carpet on July 8. Even though the jewelry was returned after the premiere, thieves may have believed the items were still in her room when they broke in.

There were no signs of forced entry into the room’s door; an investigation is underway.
