Police arrest two men in connection with robbery at Douglas Reynolds Gallery


Vancouver police believe they've solved a violent crime in one of the city's posher neighbourhoods.

Today, they announced that they've recovered several pieces of stolen jewellery from a rooming house.

The pieces are from the Douglas Reynolds Gallery at 2335 Granville Street.

In the early afternoon of July 14, a thief smashed a display case in the South Granville gallery, stealing gold aboriginal art works.

He was spotted hopping into a getaway car, according to a VPD news release.

Police found the vehicle not far away and arrested the driver.

Scott Robert Deckert, 51, has been charged with armed robbery.

Later, police arrested a second man, 41-year-old Harold Jason Amos.

He has been charged with armed robbery, disguise with intent, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, posession of a firearm contrary to an order, and possession of stolen property.

Great work. Glad they did get those thieves so quickly. Aboriginal art is a big business in Vancouver estimated a few years ago by the Vancouver Sun at $100 million a year.
