Criminal Defense Attorney in Fort Lauderdale: Knowing Robbery Charges
A maximum of 20 years imprisonment awaits two robbers after a Galleria Mall heist that caused panic among shoppers in Fort Lauderdale, according to the Sun Sentinel. The day prior to the arrest, both suspects along with two accomplices reportedly barged inside the Galleria Mall, an upscale shopping center in the city, and forced everyone to get down. The police statement cited in the article also said that they used sledge hammers to smash the display cases of the Mayors store and pilfer its authentic Rolex watches and diamonds. A 30-mile pursuit ensued when the robbers left the building with a fifth suspect waiting in their getaway vehicle. The chase ended when their car crashed and the five felons fled. Only two were accosted while the remaining three are still at large.
