Philadelphia men indicted in Ogden jewelry store heist
OGDEN — Almost a year later and on the other side of the country, federal prosecutors have indicted two men accused of robbing an Ogden jewelry store in broad daylight.
Investigators say Jerome Clinton Faison, 45, and David Thomas Jr., 49, smashed open display cases at Morgan Jewelers in the Newgate Mall, 3651 Wall Ave., a few days after Christmas last year and made off with an estimated $100,000 worth of necklaces, bracelets and diamond rings.
At the time of the robbery, Ogden police said the "brazen" operation only lasted about three minutes, and the store lost between 60 and 70 pieces of jewelry.
The robbery occurred during the store's business hours on Dec. 27, 2012. Faison and Thomas then reportedly took the jewelry to Philadelphia, according to court documents.
Both men face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
