ARREST IN GRAFF ROBBERY: London’s Metropolitan Police said Wednesday they have arrested a man in connection with the $65 million armed robbery at Graff’s New Bond Street boutique last week. The 50-year-old man was arrested for robbery at an East London address Monday, and has since been bailed pending further inquiries. The police also said they searched a number of addresses Tuesday, following the release of CCTV images of two of the suspects in the robbery — neither was the man arrested — earlier that day. During the raid last week, which London police have described as one of Britain’s biggest jewelry heists, 43 pieces of jewelry were taken from Graff’s Mayfair store.
