On the date listed above, at approximately 2:37 p.m., four suspects entered a jewelry store and used bear spray on everyone inside of the store. As a result, the business owner brandished their gun.

That information was described as “invaluable suspect information.” Investigators had reason to believe the suspects from the jewelry store robbery in Upland were also responsible for other robberies in Claremont and Chino Hills, CA.
