3 subjects wanted for violent smash and grab robbery

Corona, CA – On August 20, 2023, four subjects entered a jewelry store and proceeded to pepper spray an employee. The subjects then used hammers to smash several display cases. They placed jewelry into a trash can, then ran out of the store, and entered into a nearby getaway vehicle, which was described as a white Chevrolet Malibu that did not have license plates.

Police pursued the getaway vehicle, and eventually performed a PIT maneuver which allowed them to disable the vehicle. Two of the five subjects in the car were arrested. The other three subjects escaped. The three subjects were described as men in their late teens or early twenties.

If you have any information regarding these subjects, please contact the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at jsa2@jewelerssecurity.org or 212-687-0328.
