On 12/19/20, at approximately 6:34 p.m., two subjects entered a jewelry store; the first subject was on his cell phone, while the second subject went directly over to the display case containing gold merchandise. The first subject asked where the solitaires were located. As he asked the question, he lifted his shirt to reveal a handgun. He then shoved the employee into the display case.

At this point, the second subject interjected and said, “fill this bag.” The employee attempted to hand the subjects the keys to the display case, however one jumped over the counter and used a screwdriver to pry the case open containing the certified diamond rings and gold merchandise. As the employee was filling the pillowcase, the subject stated he didn’t want the components. Both men then fled from the store on foot with various gold and diamond merchandise.

Both subjects were described as Black males. They are approximately 27-years-old. The first subject is 6’ and weighs 185 lbs. He was last seen wearing a green baseball cap, a grey hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black tennis shoes and a white mask. The second subject is approximately 190 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black tennis shoes and a black mask.
