This week the U.S. District Attorney’s office in Massachusetts announced that three men from the Washington, D.C. area have been indicted for conspiracy and transporting stolen goods.
The charges are connected with a heist that took place in September 2021 at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets. According to the DA’s press release,
[The defendants] traveled from the Washington D.C. area to the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets in Massachusetts. It is alleged that, in the early morning hours of Sept. 17, 2021, the defendants and another unidentified individual smashed the front door of the Gucci outlet store, went inside and took approximately $32,000 in high-end merchandise. The defendants then left the store and drove back to the Washington D.C. area.
Police used phone records and surveillance footage from numerous locations to track the defendants’ movement and activity between DC and Wrentham.
Additionally, the DA’s office claims that one of the defendants attempted to sell the stolen items using his Instagram page.
The DA’s press release states that,
The charge of conspiracy provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, at least three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000. The charge of transporting more than $5,000 in stolen goods across state lines provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.
