It isn't often we read about jewelry store heists. Such felony crimes seem to be relegated to the obscure annals of history or are the works of mystery fiction. Such is not the case out of Plainfield Township today.
Kent County authorities confirm that they are searching for four suspects believed to be responsible for an alleged attempted robbery at gunpoint at Medawar's Jewelers.
As is the case with any criminal charge, those associated with this case will be serious if and when authorities make arrests. But as is equally the case with any criminal matter, it must be remembered that anyone who might be charged is granted the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. A vigorous defense is always called for.
