Two men remanded in custody following second raid in one month.
Two men have been charged in relation to a second jewellery raid at London’s Dorchester Hotel in a month.
It is believed six people took part in the robbery on July 10, with police reports stating the gang arrived at the Park Lane hotel on three mopeds, before smashing through the front door into display cabinets to steal fine jewellery.
The Metropolitan Police Flying Squad have since charged two people in relation to the July 10 raid – Reed Roberts, 23, and Skye Roberts, 19 – after four people were arrested on July 10. The two men appeared in custody at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on July 12, each charged with one count of robbery at the Dorchester Hotel.
They have been remanded in custody to appear at Kingston Crown Court on July 25.
According to the Met Police, three others arrested at an address in the Kings Cross area on July 10 in connection with the investigation – two men, aged 66 and 27, and a 46-year-old woman – have been bailed to return to a north London police station on a date in early September pending further enquiries.
The Dorchester hotel was hit in exactly the same way in the early hours of June 10, when watches and jewellery were stolen in what police called a “well-planned” heist.
The investigation continues and detectives continue to appeal for any witnesses or anyone with any information to call the Flying Squad via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
