5 suspects including a Mongolian woman who allegedly stole three gems worth 50 million rupees, have been arrested by the Kalutara District Crime Prevention Unit.

On the 22nd of February, the Mongolian woman reportedly ensnared a Ratnapura gem merchant to a guest house in Kalutara with the promise of being able to negotiate a higher price for the stone.

She used 4 decoys to bring the victim down to Kalutara.

Later, the suspect along with a few other individuals had attacked the victim, stolen three precious gems and fled the scene.

Police said the crime had been masterminded by a brother of a gang member, Mathugama Shan.

The suspects will be produced before Court today.
