(WMC-TV) - Police made a fourth arrest in connection to an alarming smash-and-grab robbery at a jewelry store in the Wolfchase Mall.

Investigators charged Maurice Williams with criminal attempted theft of property of more than $60,000 and theft of property of more than $250,000 in addition to vandalism.

The robbery in mid-January sent shoppers scrambling after loud, alarming sounds of glass breaking on a Saturday night. Police reported no injuries, but they said the five or six men involved stole 65 Rolex watches estimated to be worth $11,000 each from Reeds Jewelers.

The men reportedly put the watches in pillow cases and ran from the business.

Authorities arrested three men—Dalton Francis, Andrew Penrice, and Chadwick Bailey—from Houston in early February. At that time, police issued warrants for 34-year-old Rodrick Walker and 26-year-old Williams. 

Police also have a sixth person of interest, but they have not named that person or issued a warrant.
