$4 Million Taken In Home Invasion-Kidnap Heist

Fairfield Police say the jewelry stolen overnight from a jewelry store on Black Rock Turnpike is valued at more than $4 million. The manager of Lenox Jewelry and an employee had been kidnapped in a home invasion in Meriden,   and forced at gunpoint to open the store.

Two other victims were left behind in Meriden,  held at the Gravel Street apartment where the home invasion took place,  guarded by at least one of the suspects.  They left within a minute of the time the other suspects left the jewelry store.

The two departments are working together in their investigation,.   They did find the manager’s vehicle, 2009 model silver B-M-W 528 X-L,  which the suspects used as their getaway car.

Detectives  are working with the FBI to determine if the crime has any similarities to crimes committed elsewhere in the region.
