Last of Four Michigan Men Sentenced on Federal Charges in Connection with Jared the Galleria of Jewelry Robbery
St. Louis, MO – Robert Scott was sentenced today to 65 months for his part in the robbery of Jared the Galleria of Jewelry on Monday, December 4, 2017.
According to court records, on December 4, 2017, at approximately 8:21 p.m., Robert Scott and three co-defendants, dressed in clothing intended to disguise their identities, entered the jewelry store, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, in Richmond Heights, Missouri. While a co-defendant held the door, Scott and two other co-defendants armed with hammers, yelled for the store employees to get down. Using the hammers to smash the glass display cases that showcased jewelry, the defendants grabbed loose diamonds and watches. Scott, along with the three others, then fled. However, due to the presence of police officers in the area on an unrelated incident, the four robbers were not able to reach their getaway driver and were quickly apprehended. Grove was arrested at a nearby business behind the Boulevard St. Louis parking garage. The diamonds and watches were recovered from a backpack carried by one of the co-defendants which were valued at approximately $60,000.
Co-defendants Tyran Gray, Darrell Lee and Xavier Grove were all previously sentenced – 42 months; 36 months; and 34 months, respectively.
The case was being investigated by the Richmond Heights Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney John Ware handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
