Three men accused of robbing a jewelry store in New York were recently apprehended in Denville, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement, the suspects committed the heist at a large jewelry store located in Nassau County, NY. The robbers reportedly fled the scene before police could arrive.
A couple of days ago, however, the owner of a Morris County jewelry store recognized the suspects and contacted local police.
The trio of suspects was allegedly scoping out Tony’s Jewelers on Broadway and planning to commit another robbery. The owner of the jewelry store became suspicious when the suspects lingered in the store, so he dialed 911 and alerted law enforcement.
The suspects include a 52-year-old man, a 53-year-old man, and a 54-year-old man, all of whom are believed to be from NY. The suspects face a number of criminal charges in Morris County, including conspiracy to commit theft, conspiracy to commit burglary, hindering apprehension, and shoplifting.
After being captured and processed, the suspects were taken to the Morris County Correctional Facility in Morristown, New Jersey. They were being held at the Morristown NJ jail in lieu of bail.
Although the suspects will likely have to answer the criminal charges out of Morris County, it is likely that they will eventually be transferred to New York to stand trial for the Nassau County jewelry store robbery as well.
