HONOLULU (KHNL) -- New details are emerging about last month's Prada heist. According to court documents, four men broke into the designer label's warehouse and later divvied up the loot.

Forty-year-old Tracey Coryell was arrested Tuesday. Court papers say he admitted "he acted as a lookout," and "helped to load and transport the Prada merchandise to a house in the Salt Lake area."

Prada is an upscale clothing and accessories retailer. The company told police someone broke into its warehouse on Koula Street in Kakaako, then hauled away $1 million worth of goods. Investigators now say the take was actually less than half that.

According to a police affidavit, the case broke open when officers went to a home on Kekoa Place in Halawa to arrest a woman suspected of auto theft. While there, "numerous Prada marked merchandise was located within the residence," the affidavit says.

The woman told investigators Coryell gave her the items. He's now charged with second-degree burglary.
