Two charged in year-old jewelry heist case

George Town Police Station

A West Bay man and woman have been charged in connection with the robbery of Mitzi’s Fine Jewelry nearly a year ago.

The man, 31, has been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm. The woman, 38, has been charged with robbery. They will appear in court on Oct. 4.

The store on West Bay Road was held up on Nov. 18 last year.

Six months after the robbery, in May of this year, police released photographs of 26 separate pieces, including emerald and diamond rings and necklaces, which they said were taken during the robbery, in an effort to find the perpetrators.
