Ice Box Jewelry Suspects

ATLANTA (CBS46) – The case of the multi-million-dollar jewelry heist of Ice Box Diamonds and watches in Buckhead was supposed to head to court for the first time Friday for a preliminary hearing.

But, the court reset the hearing for three of the defendants to April 25.

It was expected the hearing might shed more light on how police were able to crack an elaborate scheme that took weeks to solve. Police said the robbery almost played out like something from a movie and even had a mother and son as suspects.

According to Atlanta Police, the suspects ambushed the jewelry store manager and his wife at their home in Cobb County. The suspects tied the two up and then demanded access codes to locks and safes at the store.

One of the suspects then stole the victims’ car and drove to Ice Box to meet another accomplice. Once inside the store with the codes, the suspects were able to take off with an estimated $10 million in jewelry and watches.

CBS46 and CBS46.com will have updates on the hearing as they become available throughout the day.
