Scott Storch, Miami's, uh, maybe 653rd favorite son, recently left town to record in the Big Apple. But the music producer with a history of money problems lost $100,000 worth of property this morning in an armed stickup near Times Square.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Storch was leaving Platinum Studios at 6:45 a.m. with four entourage members and had hopped into a cab to wait for another cab for additional entourage members when they were mugged by two armed men. The men took Storch's Rolex and diamond necklace, each valued at $50,000.

Apparently Storch also has an entourage member who casually carried around $4,000 in cash in a briefcase, because the crooks took that too.

The thieves also took the cab driver's keys for good measure.

The two men then took off in a Ford Explorer. Police are reviewing video surveillance footage and have recovered a fingerprint from one of the suspects.

For a guy who snorted away a sizable chunk of his former fortune, losing $100,000 in bling has to hurt.

Why would you wanna wear $100,000 worth of jewelry on you in New York City, that's stupid. Guess his talent doesn't align with his intelligence. Most people who have that much money, don't take taxis, they have a car waiting for them.

can you say set up! Also, you do not need a briefcase to carry around $4000 cash. $400,000, yes. Not 4K.That is only 40 100 dollars bills.

Curtis, it's suppose to be $50,000. It's been corrected.

You wrote that they took his watch and necklace, both of which were valued at $5,000 and a briefcase with $4,000 cash....how does that add up to $100,000?
