HONG KONG (Kyodo) A Hong Kong court indicted five people Monday in connection with the multimillion-dollar theft of jewelry from a store in Tokyo’s Ginza district over the holidays.

Based on tips, police arrested three men and three women aged between 36 and 53 last week and found brand-name watches, necklaces, rings and bank notes worth around 25 million Hong Kong dollars (about ¥300 million) in their homes and in three safe-deposit boxes.
