FBI agents last week arrested two Manhattan Diamond District businessmen and 10 other people in an alleged conspiracy to hijack Federal Express trucks they believed contained millions of dollars worth of diamonds.
The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office said in a complaint that Brian Greenwald, president of Doppelt & Greenwald Diamonds, and Roni Amrussi, of diamond wholesaler Davidov & Amrussi, helped organize the armed robbery of a FedEx truck in December 2007 and a thwarted holdup planned for last Thursday. Authorities were able to stop the robbery based on information gathered over 12 months from surveillance, wiretaps and two cooperating witnesses in the 2007 case.
