British police charge 8th suspect in jewel heist

POLICE say they have charged an eighth man in one of Britain's biggest heists.

The 22-year-old suspect David Joseph is accused of helping to plot the Aug. 6 theft of US$65 million worth of rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches from Graff Diamonds' flagship store in London.

Seven others have been charged with conspiracy to rob the Bond Street jeweler. One of them, 24-year-old Aman Kassaye, is also accused of attempted murder and false imprisonment.

Police say two men walked into the store, pulled out guns, briefly took an employee hostage and escaped with the jewels in a series of getaway cars.

A ninth suspect has been released on bail and has not been charged.
