PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WHEC) — Two Rochester men are facing charges after they allegedly stole more than $200,000 worth of jewelry from a Pittsford jewelry store earlier this year.

Deputies arrested 23-year-old Naquan White on Oct. 15 and 25-year-old Alphonso Bouie Jr. on Oct. 21. Both men were charged with grand larceny, burglary, and criminal mischief in connection to the April 27 burglary at The Source Fine Jewelers on Monroe Avenue. 


White allegedly smashed one of the store's front plate glass windows with a sledgehammer. Once inside, deputies said he smashed three jewelry cases and began to fill his pockets with jewelry before handing jewelry to Bouie, who was allegedly waiting outside. The suspects then fled the area in a car.

The retail value of the stolen jewelry was between $212,000 and $250,000, according to investigators. Damages to the window and jewelry cases exceeded $6,000.

White is being held in the Monroe County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $15,000 bond. Bouie is also being held in jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
