4 indicted in $4 million jewelry store robbery

In a 2010 photo, Jim Stein, owner of Stuart Kingston Jewelers, poses with a custom case holding the Liberty Ruby in Wilmington, Del. Four men are accused of robbing Stuart Kingston Jewelers in November 2011 and escaping with $4.4 million in jewelry, including the 5-inch, 4-pound Liberty Bell Ruby, made from the largest mined ruby in the world. The indictment says the armed, masked men restrained store employees with zip ties and duct tape and smashed glass display cases with hammers.
