U.S. Marshals have apprehended a fifth suspect wanted for the brazen armed robbery of a Manhasset jewelry store two years ago, Nassau County police said.
Christopher Evans, 28, of Brooklyn, was arrested Wednesday and charged with robbery and criminal use of a firearm.
Police said Evans was the only suspect who escaped authorities that chased the quintet after they allegedly robbed the London Jewelers on Northern Boulevard of Rolex and Breitling watches on Oct. 14, 2011.
Javon Gamble began serving a prison term of 21 to 25 years for the crime this month. Leroy Nelson pleaded guilty to robbery May 3 and will be sentenced June 7. Reggie Fowler pleaded guilty in April and will be sentenced Friday.
Alleged getaway driver Samuel Cephas has been held without bail since he pleaded not guilty after his arrest. He is due back in court June 7.
Evans will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
