ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB)–A Batavia woman is charged in a violent home invasion in the Rochester area in which she allegedly pistol-whipped a couple to steal expensive jewelry including dozens of expensive watches.
Jessica Moscicki, 24, has been charged with possession and brandishing a firearm in the commission of the crime which took place in Greece, N.Y.
Moscicki and three male accomplices entered the home through the garage of jewelry wholesalers Marc and Marion Agostinelli on Oct. 2. The couple was locked in a closet before the invaders left.
The group stole in excess of $200,000 in cash, five loose diamonds, and between 20 and 40 luxury watches.
Police earlier arrested Clarence Lambert, 22, of Rochester in connection with the robbery.
Police say that Moscicki was allegedly with Lambert when he attempted to sell a Rolex watch stolen during the home invasion at a pawn shop in Rochester on Tuesday.
Moscicki was arrested Friday after being pulled over while driving on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst. When she was arrested by Amherst Police, she was driving the same car she allegedly drove from the pawn shop.
She faces from seven years to life in prison, if convicted, under federal sentencing guidelines.
