BEVERLY HILLS, California — Three suspects were arrested this week in connection with a brutal robbery in which $5 million worth of jewelry was stolen from a luxury store in Beverly Hills earlier this year, police said.
On March 22, six robbers with sledgehammers smashed glass windows and stole precious gems, designer watches and necklaces from Luxury Jewels of Beverly Hills.
Police and FBI investigators used surveillance footage to track down three of the suspects, who were arrested Wednesday after officers in several locations issued search warrants.
A 20-year-old man and an unidentified minor were taken into custody in Long Beach, Beverly Hills police said in a press release.
A third suspect, a man from Gardena, was arrested by California Highway Patrol agents during a traffic stop in Barstow, officials said.

Evidence that links the suspects to a jewelry heist was found during Wednesday’s arrests, authorities said.
The investigation is underway.
