FBI to Help Local Police in Diamond Thefts

Jul 30, 2008 3:06 PM   By Jeff Miller

RAPAPORT...  The FBI agreed to a joint investigation with local police into several recent diamond and jewelry heists across Arkansas and Tennessee.

All told, some $1.5 million in diamonds and jewelry were stolen in the past three weeks in and near Little Rock, as well as in Nashville. 

Steve Frazier, a spokesman for the FBI's Little Rock field office, told the Associated Press that  agents were working under the assumption the robberies were indeed linked.

On Tuesday, robbers stole $500,000 from a New York jewelry salesman who stopped at a high-end Little Rock jewelry store. The circumstances at this robbery matched those from near-by Pine Bluff,  and in Nashville where robbers stole about $1 million combined from two diamond salesmen.
