Update on the brazen 47th street robbery


Following a brazen robbery at a 47th street jewelry store, owned to Bucharaian Jews, the NYPD feels it is ‘closing in’ on the suspects.

Law enforcement officials told the New York Post this week say they learned about the bungled effort after reviewing surveillance video and talking to witnesses. The men tied up workers at Avianne and Co. located in Manhattan’s Diamond District on Sunday.

When they left the store, no taxi would pick them up, “Nobody would pick them up,” a New York City Police Department official told the newspaper. “They seemed to have it all worked out, except how to get away.”

In the end, they ‘somehow’ managed to get away.

The estimated value of the items stolen in the heist is $4 million, the New York Post reported, citing a law enforcement source.
