OKLAHOMA CITY -

Two men were arrested in Oklahoma City in connection to a jewelry store heist that happened in Los Gatos, California.

According to police, earlier this week, the department’s robbery investigators were contacted by detectives with the Los Gatos, California Police Department. They needed assistance locating two suspects wanted in connection with a jewelry store heist in their city, where the suspects got away with a million dollars-worth of jewelry.

Police said the suspects were believed to be in Oklahoma City (their hometown.)

Los Gatos detectives were escorted by members of OKCPD’s Robbery Unit as well as FBI agents to several locations in Oklahoma City. Both suspects were taken into custody Thursday.

Willie Thompson was arrested for the jewelry store robbery in Los Gatos, CA as well as one in Huntington Beach, CA. Melvin Andrews was arrested in connection with the Los Gatos case.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that these suspects are connected with several other similar heists around the country as well.
