A pair of bandits who stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from an Ogden store are now facing federal charges for taking the stolen loot to Pennsylvania.
The two men, both in their 40s, struck a Morgan Jewelers in Ogden the afternoon of Dec. 27. Court documents say they pried open a display case, grabbed as many as 70 pieces of jewelry and "casually walked out" of the store. The men's indictment, filed in U.S. District Court in Eastern Pennsylvania, adds that they made off with diamond rings, bracelets, necklaces and other things worth about $100,000.
The incident was captured on surveillance cameras. Crime scene investigators also discovered a finger print that did not belong to a store employee on the inside of the display case. A police database connected the print to one of the two men, and court documents add that "there would be no reasonable explanation" for the print unless it belonged to the person who pried open the case.
