Smash-and-grab Bronx robbers steal $2.15 million in diamond jewellery

Published

on

Cops say the suspects broke in and grabbed the loot in 47-seconds 

Police in New York are seeking information about a group of masked men who quickly robbed a jewelry store in the Bronx of more than $2 million in jewelry.

The lightning-fast crime happened from start to finish in just 20 seconds.

The NYPD released video of the daring daytime robbery of Rocco’s Jewellery, located at 2521 Webster Ave. in Fordham Manor. 

Police said the incident started around 2:38 p.m., when the first perpetrator — a man in a white t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and black sunglasses — approached the store and was buzzed inside by an employee.

That individual, cops said, then held the door open while three men wearing dark-colored clothing, masks and gloves rushed inside. 

As seen in the surveillance camera footage, the crew wasted no time in their brazen operation. One suspect took a mallet to the glass display cases, smashing them open so his colleagues can grab the jewelry contained within. 

The three masked robbers shoved the stolen, high-end loot into a red Doordash delivery bag—and within 20 seconds, they were out the door.

According to law enforcement, the store employee was not injured in caper.

Following an investigation, police determined that the bandits got away with $2.15 million in hot rocks and other jewelry items.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case, police reported.

Anyone with information regarding the heist can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). 

Tips can be submitted online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

Pink-coloured pigeon rescued in New York

Pigeons come in a whole range of colours, but it seems pink isn’t one of them

That’s exactly what happened in New York though, where a bright-coloured bird was rescued.

Wildlife groups believe the pigeon was dyed as part of a gender reveal ceremony.

The feathery friend was suffering from malnutrition when it was found in Madison Square Park.

In a statement, the Wild Bird Fund says they should never be dyed because of risks like starvation and even death.

It went on to say the “poor bird has it bad enough unable to find food in the wild, fly well or escape predators.”

“But being a bright, unusual colour makes him even more of a target.”

Anti-government protests swept across the country after the incident.

The two individuals in the dancing video were reportedly detained after posting the clip to their social media accounts – which have a combined following of more than two million people.

Donald Trump has described the investigation into his company as the “biggest witch hunt” in the history of the United States during a formal deposition.

In September 2022, the New York Attorney General Letitia James, announced she would be looking into the Trump organisation’s business practices.

James alleges the former president “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and cheat the system”.

The lawsuit also takes aim at some of Trump’s children, and executives of his business.

During the deposition tape, Trump can be seen reading a lengthy statement.

During this, the former president asserts his constitutional right to not answer questions, while accusing James of investigating him out of political spite.
