The NY Post reports One of the three robbers who pulled off a brazen robbery at a 47th street jewelry store, owned to Bucharaian Jews last month, has been nabbed in Florida, officials said Tuesday.
William Sweeney Jr., assistant director-in-charge of the FBI said “In the day and age of technology and cameras, you would think robbers trying to pull off a cinematic heist would think twice.” Adding, “Their mistakes should be a warning to everyone wanting to be a copycat: You will get caught and pay the price for breaking the law.”
A month ago the NYPD said it feels it is ‘closing in’ on the suspects.
When they left the store, no taxi would pick them up, “Nobody would pick them up,” a New York City Police Department official told the newspaper. “They seemed to have it all worked out, except how to get away.”
In the end, they ‘somehow’ managed to getaway.
