WILMINGTON, Del. — Federal prosecutors said Friday that four men arrested in the theft of a $2 million ruby from a Delaware jewelry store are tied to a ring that committed several similar smash-and-grab heists in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

A December indictment unsealed Thursday in Delaware details allegations about the theft ring. A superseding indictment was filed and final arrest made that same day in connection with the Pennsylvania and New Jersey robberies.

Delaware prosecutors said the suspects, none of whom was arrested in Delaware, are all Pennsylvania men with no ties to Delaware but a history of crime, including serving time for armed robbery.

“These are essentially professional armed robbers,” U.S. Attorney Charles Oberly III said.
