Three men wanted in connection with the robbery of a New York jewelry store were recently captured in Denville, NJ.
According to authorities, the suspects pulled off the heist at a large jewelry store in Nassau County, New York. The robbers reportedly got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewelry.
Now the suspects in the NY robbery are in police custody after the owner of a jewelry store in Morris County NJ recognized them.
The three suspects were inside Tony’s Jewelers on Broadway and acting suspiciously, so the jewelry store owner dialed 911 and notified local law enforcement.
Denville NJ police soon arrived at the scene and placed the suspects under arrest.
The suspects, all of whom are from New York, have been charged with multiple crimes in Morris County NJ, including conspiracy to commit theft, conspiracy to commit burglary, hindering apprehension, and shoplifting.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility in Morristown, NJ. It is possible that the suspects will eventually be transferred to NY so that they can answer theft charges stemming from the Nassau County jewelry store robbery.
