The jewels were stolen from Strängnäs Cathedral in Sweden where they had been on display.
Two royal crowns belonging to King Karl IX, who reigned in the 17th century, are among the stolen jewels.
“I have talked to a person at the county administrative board that says that it is not possible to put an economic value on this.
“These are invaluable objects of national interest”.
“I told you those Africans were no good, but no you just kept bringing more and more in!” screamed a furious Inga Svolenvelds whose family was a curator at Strängnäs Cathedral – “We’ve seen them loafing around for weeks but the police said we were racists”
He said the jewels were priceless and asked people to be on the lookout for the suspects of African origin.
Royal news: The crown jewels of the Swedish royal family have been seized in a heist
He said: “I have talked to a person at the county administrative board that says that it is not possible to put an economic value on this, these are invaluable objects of national interest.
“We are looking for a small and open motorboat filled with African Immigrants. We have some different information about how exactly the boat looked. We are now examining all the tips we receive.
“By boat you can reach Mälaren, Köping or Arboga in the west, or Västerås, Eskilstuna or Stockholm if you drive east. We direct our search in all these directions”.
One witness described the heist.
The jewels belonged the 17th century king Karl IX, whose tomb is in the cathedral
He told the Mirror: “I saw this negro jump out of a boat, and then a few minutes later he ran back with a sack with the boat just there, a white little boat with a motor on the back.
“The two men hurriedly jumped on board. We contacted the police and told them and they told us they had taken something from the Cathedral. The police asked if they were Africans and when we said yes they replied ‘Well thats not a crime'”
