Over $15,000 in Necklaces Stolen From Arundel Mills

Four men recently stole two diamond necklaces worth $15,759 from the Hanover Mall in Arundel Mills. It’s amazing that they actually got away with it, because they simply walked into the store, reached across the counter and stole the jewelry right out of the display case. They then ran from the store, and officers were unable to find them.*

The burglary happened around 7 in the evening. Anne Arundel County police provided this description of the burglars:

  1. One man is 6 feet tall, black, in his 40s, weighing around 210 pounds. He wore a navy blue baseball cap, a button-down shirt, and blue jeans with a horseshoe symbol on the rear pockets.
  2. Another man is 5-foot-8, in his 40s, black, about 160 pounds, with glasses, and is wearing a dark hoodie, baseball cap and blue jeans.
  3. The third suspect is about 6 feet tall and black, is wearing a hoodie and weighs about 270 pounds.
  4. The fourth suspect is 5-foot-9 and black, weighs about 230 pounds, and was wearing a black-and-white checked button-down shirt.
