Tustin police in Orange County announced the arrest of six suspects in a jewelry store smash-and-grab that occurred on April 28, 2022 at approximately 2 p.m. Tustin Police Department responded to The Jewelry Exchange located near the 15000 block of Tustin Village Way after hearing that a smash-and-grab robbery was in progress.

When police arrived, they learned that six masked suspects brandishing handguns, entered the business and began smashing the jewelry cases with a tire iron and hammers. The suspects fled the business with over $87,000 worth of jewelry as they jumped the fence onto the southbound SR-55 freeway where three get-away vehicles were parked.

Tustin detectives authored and served several search warrants throughout Southern California on the suspect’s residences in coordination with the Long Beach Police Department, the LAPD, and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office which resulted in the arrest of all six suspects.
