GROSSE POINTE (WWJ/AP) - Grosse Pointe police say a bit of luck helped them catch three suspects in the Labor Day weekend theft of $1 million worth of jewelry from a home in the affluent Detroit suburb.

Wayne County prosecutors said home invasion suspect 19-year-old Matthew Sedgeman of Detroit appeared in Wayne County Circuit Court on Thursday, along with two people accused of handling the stolen loot.

Defendants Joshua Sedgeman, 20, and Alaina Robinson, 25, both of Detroit were charged with Receiving and Concealing Stolen Property in relation to the stolen jewelry from the home invasion.

The Detroit Free Press reported  police Detective Christopher Lee happened to be at a pawn shop investigating the theft when his accomplices walked in with some of the jewelry.

All three defendants are due back in court at 9 a.m. on Oct. 15. A message seeking comment was left with Sedgeman’s lawyer, Susan Dunn.

Lee said pawn networks and the Gemological Institute of America are searching for the jewelry.
