Baltimore County police have identified the third suspect in the May 13 theft of an antique and estate jewelry store in Lutherville, Maryland. According to police more than $25,000 in jewelry was taken from Bijou Jewelers in the 10700 block of Falls Road.
Stanley William Lester Gwynn, 45, of Elkridge has been charged with theft from $10,000 to under $100,000 and is free on $100,000 bail.
Earlier this week police took two suspects, Robert Antoine Weathers, 53, and Robin Tracy Nelson, 50, into custody at the Comfort Inn in the 5800 block of Baltimore National Pike. Police say a fourth suspect is an adult female not yet in police custody. They will not release her identity until she had been officially charged.
Police investigation indicates that on May 8 Robert Antoine Weathers, 53, and Robin Tracy Nelson, 50, took jewelry from an unlocked safe in the office as two other suspects distracted employees. According to police the theft was not noticed until the suspects left the store.

Theft of $46,250 worth of jewelry from Ricardo's Gems and Jewelry in Lutherville on December 31, 2013 and theft of $2075 worth of jewelry from Kaylah Designs in Pikesville on September 9, 2013.
