Four Michigan Men Indicted on Federal Charges in Connection with Jared The Galleria of Jewelry Robbery
St. Louis, MO – Four individuals from Michigan were indicted today for their part in the robbery of Jared the Galleria of Jewelry on Monday, December 4, 2017.
Tyran Gray, 20; Xavier Grove, 33; Darrell Lee, 20; and Robert Scott, 29, were each indicted by a federal grand jury on one felony count each of robbery which interfered with interstate commerce, following a criminal complaint filed on December 5.
According to court records, the four named defendants entered Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, located at 21 The Boulevard, Richmond Heights, Missouri. One held the door open while the others smashed the glass cases, taking loose diamonds and watches in the presence of employees of Jared’s. The defendants ran out of the store on foot and fled the scene. Due to an unrelated incident, there were several police officers in the area at the time of the robbery and they pursued the defendants who were later arrested and the stolen property recovered.
The robbery charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or fines up $250,000. In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.
The case is being investigated by the Richmond Heights Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney John Ware is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
