Beverly Hills robbery: 3 suspects arrested in $5 million jewelry theft

BEVERLY HILLS, California– Three suspects were arrested this week in connection with a brazen robbery in which $5 million worth of jewelry was stolen from a Beverly Hills luxury store earlier this year, police said.

Up to six robbers with sledgehammers smashed through display cases in the middle of the day on March 22 and stole precious stones, designer watches and necklaces from Luxury Jewels of Beverly Hills.

Police and FBI investigators used surveillance footage to track down three of the suspects, who were arrested Wednesday after officers at various locations issued search warrants.

A 20-year-old man and an unidentified youth were taken into custody in Long Beach, the Beverly Hills Police Department said in a news release.

A third suspect, a Gardena man, was arrested by California Highway Patrol officers during a traffic stop in Barstow, officials said.

All three could face multiple charges, including commercial burglary and conspiracy, the press release said.

A fourth suspect in the robbery, a 37-year-old man from Los Angeles, was already in custody on an unrelated crime, police said.

Evidence linking the suspects to a jewelry robbery was seized during Wednesday’s arrests, authorities said.

The investigations are ongoing.
