FBI looking for thieves and the Liberty Bell ruby they stole

    The FBI is looking for five things: a ruby shaped like the Liberty Bell and the four armed robbers who stole it.

    The 3.5 pound, 8,000-carat $2 million ruby was taken from the Stuart Kingston Galleries in Wilmington in November. According to the Daily News, the robbers are believed to be from or connected to Philadelphia, home of the original Liberty Bell.

    Have a tip? Call the FBI in Delaware at (302) 658-4391. The gallery owner is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the thieves.
