Motorized Mayhem In Motown: The Larrys Seen Buying Scooter Used In Metro Detroit’s Hutch The Jeweler Slaying, Per Police Report

November 17, 2022 — Prosecutors in Metro Detroit will tie both Roy and Darnell Larry to the motor scooter used in the Dan (Hutch the Jeweler) Hutchinson murder last summer, according to investigative documents related to the homicide. Darnell Larry can be seen on video surveillance buying the scooter two days prior to the killing at G&R Bike Shop in Detroit and both Larrys were taped in the bike shop parking lot minutes later loading the scooter on to the flatbed of a pick-up truck. On the day of Hutchinson’s homicide, the Larrys were once again caught on security camera footage in possession of the scooter in the vicinity of where the murder occurred.

Known as the “Jeweler to the Stars” in the Motor City, the wildly popular and deeply beloved “Hutch the Jeweler” was shot to death behind the wheel of his GMC Yukon Denali on the afternoon of June 3, 2022, outside the Pay Benny pawn shop he just bought in Oak Park, Michigan. Prosecutors in Oakland County, Michigan say that “Precious Roy” Larry used the motor scooter in question to drive-by Hutchinson’s car as he was pulling out of the parking lot and unload 15 shots from a semi-automatic weapon. The 45-year old Larry was arrested near the scene of the crime after being hit by a car trying to flee.

The indictment claims Roy Larry and his cousin, convicted murderer Darnell Larry, were hired by Southfield, Michigan attorney Marco Bisbikis to kill Hutchinson in a plan to steal millions from his estate. In the months before the slaying, Hutchinson and his wife had Bisbikis draft a will for them. Per police reports, the Larrys were offered $50,000 to carry out the hit.

Hutchinson, 47, owned Hutch’s Jewelry in Oak Park, an urban-chic staple in the spending habits of Detroit’s high-end hip-hop, athlete and entertainer crowd. His wife, Marissa was next to him in the passenger’s seat when he was slain, however wasn’t hurt in the attack.

Oak Park is a suburb directly north of Detroit’s city limits on the near westside. The Pay Benny pawn shop and Hutch’s Jewelry are less than a mile apart on Greenfield Road. According to the indictment

The Hutchinsons attended a meeting with Bisbikis at his law office the morning of Hutch the Jeweler’s murder. They left the meeting around noon and headed to their newly-purchased pawn shop where Hutch the Jeweler was gunned down. Following the murder, Bisbikis held a meeting with at least two of co-conspirators in his office, according to prosecutors and text messages recovered by police.

Darnell Larry, 57, and Angelo Raptoplous, 32, were arrested in the case back in August. Raptoplous, who has no criminal record, is alleged to have acted as an intermediary between the Larrys and Bisbikis in the conspiracy. was also arrested and charged in the case in late August, named as the alleged go-between for Bisbikis and the Larrys.

Bisbikis, both Larrys and Raptoplous all pleaded not guilty to the charges and await trial from behind bars. Precious Roy Larry did two years in state prison out of Ohio for drug trafficking in the 2000s. Darnell Larry spent 25 years in state prison for a homicide he committed in the 1990s and got caught dealing drugs from his prison cell.
