Holmans Jewelry Heist

Police in Pacific Grove arrested two brothers from Corral de Tierra on Friday who are suspected of jewelry heists on Lighthouse Avenue.

Cmdr. John Miller said Zachary and Joseph Thomas, 24 and 23, were arrested at the Pacific Grove Police Department Friday afternoon and were later transferred to county jail for booking.

Miller said the brothers walked into Holman’s Antique Plaza on Monday. One asked to try on a gold necklace, and while the other distracted an employee, the first walked out of the building wearing the jewelry.

Pacific Grove police sent out an “alert flier” to local police agencies, and Seaside officers recognized the brothers from “previous contacts,” Miller said. An officer called the men’s parents, he said, because officers did not have phone numbers for either suspect. The parents contacted the brothers and persuaded them to turn themselves in, Miller said.
