Three New Jersey men charged in jewelry roberry

When faced with criminal charges of any level, a strong defense is the best way to protect your future. From traffic violations to felony charges, legal challenges require an understanding of the law and the local court system as well as the ability to plan and negotiate for the best possible outcome. For three men charged in New Jersey smash-and-grab, individual criminal defense strategies may make a difference in future charges, convictions and sentencing.

Two of the men are 35 years old and one man is 33 years old. They are being charged with robbing a jewelry store in Cranford, New Jersey, on Jan. 9. The men, along with a 22-year-old man, are also accused of large-value jewelry heists in three states. They reportedly stole over $1 million in jewelry over seven months.

The latest robbery began at around 12:50 p.m. on Jan. 9. The three men allegedly entered the store and one smashed a glass case with a hammer. He reportedly grabbed $36,000 in watches. The three men left the store; two of them fled the scene in a car while one man fled on foot. The man who fled on foot was arrested moments after by an officer who was nearby.

According to authorities, the men used intimidation tactics to scare customers and store employees by smashing things during the robberies. All four men have been arrested. The three men suspected in the Cranford robbery have been charged with all four robberies. The 22-year-old man has been charged with an Atlantic City robbery. If convicted, the men could each face up to 20 year prison sentences.
