Authorities arrest third man in International Diamond Center theft

After a short chase, authorities Thursday caught the third suspect in a Nov. 22 armed robbery of Tampa's International Diamond Center.

Officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with the help of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, arrested Bryan Bobby Beaudoin, 24.

Beaudoin is accused of breaking into the jewelry store with Anthony Mina Wahba and Clyde Bernard Johnson II. Those two were arrested last week by Hillsborough deputies who said the pair stole Rolex watches and diamonds from the store on N Dale Mabry Highway.

Wahba used a small sledgehammer to break the glass cases, deputies say. Johnson, who had a 9mm handgun, took an employee's wallet, deputies said. No one was injured.
