Jewel Thief Needs Help Breaking Into Showbiz

LARGO, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’d think a jewel thief wouldn’t have trouble with break-ins but that’s not the case with George Feder.

He’s a former jewel thief who is now trying to break into showbiz.

Feder figures his crime-ridden antics would make a great film or TV series, but he needs someone who can help him negotiate with Hollywood bigshots and keep them from stealing his ideas.

During his years as “the Houdini of jewel thieves,” Feder would do anything to get near the gems, even pretend to be a tennis pro or wear a tuxedo.

As he puts it, “It’s important to blend in and avoid being seen.”

Feder also prides himself on his code of conduct during a heist. He says a good thief “only steals enough jewelry to fit in your pocket. Otherwise, it sticks out.”

Also, he says it’s good manners to leave the crime scene neat and tidy, especially because it helps keep the victim unaware that their jewels have been pilfered.”

Feder has appeared on shows like America’s Most Wanted as an anti-crime expert but none of his showbiz contacts have come forward to help him make his dream a reality.

That’s a shame because the 60-year-old former criminal believes his story will prevent future burglars from following in his footsteps.
