LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A man who is currently housed at the Livingston County Jail will soon have evidence presented to a Grand Jury by the U.S. Attorney William Hochul Jr.’s Office implicating his possible role in a violent $200,000 home invasion and jewelry heist in Greece in early October 2014.
According to Barbara Burns, Public Affairs Officer for U.S. Attorney Hochul’s Office, Clarence Lambert, 22, is currently under indictment and awaits motions in federal court on Friday.
According to news partner 13WHAM, Lambert, of Rochester, is one of three who were arrested in connection to the home invasion and robbery of a pair of jewelry wholesalers, during which the jeweler and his wife say they were pistol whipped and locked in a closet.
Lambert is charged with Robbery and Brandishing a Firearm for his suspected role in the robbery. The three alleged perpetrators, Clarence Lambert, Gary Lambert, and Jessica Moscicki, are accused of stealing in excess of $200,000 in cash, diamonds, and luxury watches.
Lambert was arrested after police say he attempted to pawn one of the stolen watches at a local pawn broker in Rochester. If found guilty of both charges, Lambert could face up to life in prison and a $500,000 fine.
Lambert has no known ties to Livingston County.
