This is a follow-up on a story from back in August, when 3 suspects entered Valliani Jewelers at The Great Mall and stole expensive jewelry and watches, shattering display cases in the process.

After the crime, Milpitas detectives pooled security footage from Valliani and other nearby businesses. This footage, combined with resident tips, verified that the same suspects had committed another crime at Home Depot in The Great Mall shopping center just before hitting the jewelry store.

Detectives have scoured a variety of Central and Northern California locations to identify the suspects and/or their black 4-door sedan. Today, the Milpitas Police Department (MPD) upped the ante:

In a press release, the Department wrote, “The Milpitas Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the three suspects involved in this theft at the Valliani Jewelers and is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of these suspects.” 

The investigation remains active and ongoing. Got info? Call the Milpitas Police Department openly (408-586-2400) or anonymously (408-586-2500), or write in with tips through the Department’s website:
