STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 26-year-old Detroit man was sentenced Monday to four years in federal prison for his part in a smash-and-grab robbery of a Stamford jewelry store, according to Deirdre M. Daly, U.S. attorney for Connecticut.

Brian Moore worked with two accomplices to steal more than $250,000 worth of items from Sidney Thomas Jewelers in the Stamford Town Center Mall on Nov. 26, 2014, Daly said in a statement.

Moore, along with Richard Mathew Bailey and Daiuhn Griffin, both from Detroit, entered the jewelry store with hammers and went to work smashing display cases, targeting Rolex watches, Daly said.

Bailey was caught moments after the robbery while running from the scene. Moore and Griffin were arrested at a later date.

Moore, who helped to organize the robbery by recruiting his accomplices and driving some of them to Stamford from Michigan, pleaded guilty to interfering with commerce by robbery on Aug. 31, Daly said.

In addition to the prison term, District Judge Victor A. Bolden ordered that Moore pay restitution in an amount to be determined and to serve three years of probation after his release. He was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport. 

Bailey and Griffin also have pleaded guilty to interfering with commerce by robbery. According to Daly, both men are awaiting sentencing.

The case was investigated by the FBI and Stamford police.
