After five years and over 1.2 million dollars in jewels stolen from jewelry stores from across the country, the FBI has busted a nation wide grab and go theft ring. Nineteen suspects in the Detroit, Michigan area were recently arrested in connection with this theft ring.
Between the years of 2006 and April 2011, these suspects are alleged to have stolen over 1.2 million dollars in luxury watches as well as diamond rings and jewelry. This Detroit area based theft ring has been suspected of hitting over 45 stores within 22 states nationwide. They would then ship the items back to Michigan. The stolen jewelry was then sold back to Michigan area jewelry stores. Over 50 individuals are suspected to have taken part in this ring, although 19 have been arrested thus far with connections to the ring. These individuals have been charged with numerous counts including conspiracy, interstate transportation of stolen property, as well as aiding and abetting.
How exactly did this enormous group of individuals manage to pull off these robberies? On the whole, a young male would enter the store and ask the sales person to look at high priced luxury items, such as diamond rings, diamond bands and luxury brand watches. Then the individual would grab the merchandise and make a quick escape to a waiting car. Sometimes the group would employ two vehicles for the theft, acting as a getaway and a diversion. Most often the getaways would result in a high speed chase.
The investigation into this ring and possible arrests of more suspects is still an on going matter for the Detroit police department as well as the FBI.
