Miami crime ring suspects stalked rich victims to steal millions in jewelry, authorities say

Authorities in South Florida have uncovered an alleged organized crime ring in which nearly a dozen suspects stalked wealthy residents, including New York Yankees star pitcher Aroldis Chapman, to steal millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry.

The discovery resulted from a long-term investigation into an alleged drug trafficking organization that handled large quantities of marijuana in the Miami area, according to an arrest affidavit filed in a Miami-Dade County court.

July 2018, investigators recovered two cell phones in his possession — one that had been “wiped clean” and another that contained “volumes” of information related to criminal activity that he and others within the organization were participating in, the court document states.

On that phone, authorities discovered evidence of several burglaries that had been committed by the organization as well as plans for several more burglaries, according to the affidavit. The planning included physical surveillance of the victims’ residences and monitoring of their Instagram accounts.

The suspects also used real-time GPS satellite tracking devices to know when their victims were home, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told reporters at a press conference Tuesday.
