The two men suspected of robbing a jewelry store in Savannah last month have been arrested by U.S. Marshals.

Investigators said Brian Beckwith and Gerald Cassell, both of Florida, had only recently been released from prison at the time of the robbery. Friday morning, Cassell was arrested in Toledo, Ohio on Tuesday, while Beckwith was picked up in Chicago.

On April 14, the two are suspected of stealing cash and jewels from the owner at gunpoint, but dropping the bag of jewelry as they fled.

The two are awaiting extradition to Hardin County.
