PINECREST, Fla. – A store manager was arrested last week for buying jewelry that was stolen from a home in Pinecrest, authorities said.

Pinecrest police said Oscar Ivan Sequeira, 34, is the manager of Xodium Jewelry and Watch Repair, which is inside Southland Mall.

According to police, three men broke into two Pinecrest homes and stole more than $500,000 worth of jewelry.

Police said the men first broke into a home May 27 and stole a safe that contained $500,000 in jewelry. The group later burglarized another home on June 9 and stole more jewelry valued at $10,000, authorities said.

Police said the men later sold the jewelry to Sequeira for $1,300.

Raderius Glenn Collins, 18, and Marcus Terrell Parker, 27, were arrested after police found a video on Facebook of the men showing the money off that police said the men received for the stolen merchandise.

Police said one of the suspects said he saw some of the gold jewelry being melted down at the store.

The third man involved in the incident has not been arrested.

Sequeira faces charges of dealing in stolen property and grand theft.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
