Police Scotland has reported that five men have been arrested following September’s daylight smash and grab raid on jewellers in Glasgow’s Argyll Arcade.
The men, aged between 23 and 31, have been arrested in connection with the incident, which took place at about 12:50pm on September 24. They will be subject of a report to Scotland’s public prosecutor.
According to the Herald Scotland, three men aged 31, 30 and 29, and two aged 23 are currently being detained in police custody in connection with robbery in which Hublot and Bell & Ross watches were taken from ROX with a reported value of £250,000.
It is believed that three of the men are from England, and two are from the east of Scotland.
Police were called to a report of four jewellers – ROX, Mappin and Webb, Laings of Glasgow and Lewis Grant – being targeted on September 24, with ROX the only jeweller to suffer stock losses on the day. Fog Bandit’s fogging system, which was activated during the raid, caused the men to flee, running through gathering crowds that had witnessed the incident.
A security guard sustained a leg injury during the incident.
