Grosse Pointe City Jewelry Heist Case Moves Forward in Third Circuit

Three people accused of stealing and receiving more than $1 million dollars in jewelry from a Grosse Pointe City residence were arraigned in Wayne County court Thursday.

Two brothers and one of the brothers' girlfriend were arraigned in Wayne County Third Circuit Court Thursday on charges that arose from a Labor Day weekend home invasion in Grosse Pointe City that netted more than $1 million dollars in stolen jewelry.

Thursday's arraignment on the information was held before Third Circuit Judge Wade McCree. Both Sedgeman brothers are currently in custody and Robinson is currently released on a $50,000 personal bond.

Matthew Sedgeman, 19, of Detroit was charged with second-degree home invasion and larceny of over $20,000. If convicted, he could face an enhanced charge for being a habitual offender and could face life in prison.

Joshua Sedgeman, 20, and Alaina Robinson, 25, both of Detroit were charged with receiving and concealing stolen property. If convicted, each are facing up to 10 years in prison and up to $15,000 in fines or three times the value of the stolen property, whichever is greater. 

The date for the defendants' preliminary exam is to be scheduled following a calendar conference on Oct. 15.

Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Veneshia Cezil has said there’s likely more than $1 million dollars worth of jewelry still missing from the Labor Day weekend heist.

The biggest crime of all could be "Alaina Loving AnthonyShanikka" wearing a tank top with those stretch marks.

Can we have a caption contest? Seriously, it would be a lot more fun and more productive than the "I will never text and drive because..." contest. Which, by the way, is obnoxious. Please take it down. I'll start: Alaina Robinson: Bringing the bedhead look back. Joshua Sedgeman: Mugshots by GQ Matthew Sedgeman: Is my chin really that big? Winner gets a free drink from me.

Nobody told Alaina Robinson that zebra stripes don't go with leopard print! Does JS's neck tattoo say something about 'bagel?' LOL! MS's chin is definitely a doublewide!

Alaina Robinson: I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Joshua Sedgeman: What you mean mook? Lana got no beef with you. Matthew Sedgeman: Do my acne scars make my chin look big?

Where's that photo of Joshua showing that exquisite tattoo on the right side of his face?
