Suspects at Graffs on 4 August Vital clues: the gangs BMW estate on CCTV two days before the robbery DETECTIVES believe they have identified at least one member of the gang behind the 40m Mayfair jewellery robbery. They are confident the identities of the other culprits in Britains biggest gems heist, at Graff Diamonds, will become clear. The breakthrough came when DNA tests on a BMW abandoned in the getaway 12 days ago matched with details on the police database. Forensic experts are also testing make-up equipment used to trans- form the appearance of the two gunmen who snatched 43 pieces of jewellery and watches from the New Bond Street store. One source close to the inquiry said: There is a wealth of evidence to work on. In a further development, police found another car believed to have been used in the getaway. The VW Sharan was discovered burnt out in Ickenham, Middlesex. Detectives believe there were six men in the gang -- the two who entered the store and a further four involved in the getaway, using three cars and a motorcycle. Both men who spoke to store staff had London accents. Detectives believe the raid was masterminded by a British criminal who is known to them and that the gang may still be in Britain. A loaded handgun apparently abandoned as the raiders fled is also expected to yield vital clues. The robbers fired a warning shot after briefly taking a Graff woman employee hostage during the two- minute robbery on 6 August. The pair were captured on CCTV outside the store two days earlier in what was possibly an abandoned attempt at the raid, or a dry run.
