A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible in the Halloween robbery of a Lahaina jewelry store, where more than a million dollars’ worth of items were stolen, according to Maui police on Friday.
On Oct. 31 at 12:16 p.m., a masked man dressed in a full-length black gown, wearing black gloves, a black mask and black Nike shoes with a white swoosh and white soles entered Greenleaf Diamonds at 730 Front St.
No customers were present when the man entered. He brandished a black Glock-like, semi-automatic looking pistol. He then demanded three items from a display case, which contained multiple pieces of jewelry.
The three items stolen were a 10.10 pink diamond main loose GIA valued at $240,000; a 14K-W/G 20.20 karat diamond stud earrings valued at $378,000; and a platinum 5.06 karat fancy light pink diamond GIA valued at $450,000. The total value of the stolen items is $1.068 million.
Jewelers Mutual Insurance Co. is offering the $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. Jewelers Mutual also will pay 10 percent of the cost of any merchandise recovered through the use of a person’s information.
