New York Police Commissioner William Bratton announced the arrests Friday, and said he expects additional arrests to be made.
Five men in masks stormed into Cartier’s flagship location around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, smashed glass display cases with hammers, and grabbed 16 watches worth more than $700,000.
