Third Man Charged over 40 Million Pound Jewel Heist in London

London police have charged a third man in connection with Britain's largest-ever jewelry heist, they said Friday.

Clinton Mogg, 42, of Bournemouth, England, was charged with conspiracy to rob the Graff jewelry store in London's Mayfair neighborhood August 6, London's Metropolitan Police Service said.

Mogg was scheduled to appear in court Saturday, police said.

Two other men arrested in the case were charged Friday with conspiracy to commit robbery and possessing a handgun, police said, CNN reports.

A record reward of up to £1 million has been offered to track those behind the daylight robbery, in which forty-three rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches worth £40 million were stolen.

Two men walked into Graff Diamond store and threatened staff with handguns. As they left with the gems, they took a female staff member with them but abandoned her outside as they drove off, Times Online informs.

Solomun Beyene, 24, of St John's Wood, north London, and Craig Calderwood, 26, of no fixed address, have also been charged with possessing a handgun.

They were remanded in custody.

More than 40 items, including rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches, were taken from the jewellers two weeks ago, Reuters informs.
