Police analyzed male outerwear left at the crime scene and security camera footage, and identified the suspects as 3 British nationals.

The suspects reportedly entered Japan 2 days before the incident via Narita Airport, and left for Britain 2 days after the robbery.

On Wednesday, police obtained arrest warrants on suspicion of robbery resulting in bodily injury.

Investigators plan to look into a global jewelry heist organization to which they believe the 3 Britons belong.
