On 3/15/23, at 3:26 p.m., three subjects entered a jewelry store and asked to see earrings and gold chains. Based on demonstrated suspicious behaviors, store staff contacted mall security, yet prior to their arrival, the subjects exited the store. Shortly after, the subjects returned and after browsing for approximately 5-10 minutes, subject #1 began to slam the showcase containing gold with a large rubber mallet. As mall security approached the store, subjects #2 & #3 fled the store, while approximately 10 seconds later, subject #1 also fled the store without taking any gold jewelry out of the smashed showcase.
Subject #1 – Black or mixed-race male, 18-22 years old, 6’0”, slim build. He was last seen wearing a black beanie, a grey Nike hoodie, matching pants, and red shoes.
Subject #2 – Black male, 18-22 years old, 6’0”, slim build, with a goatee. He was last seen wearing a black & red sweatsuit with a butterfly on the front of his pants.
Subject #3 – Black male, 18-22 years old, 6’0”, slim build. He was last seen wearing light jeans, and a purple hoodie that said “fruit loops”. If you have any information regarding these subjects, please contact the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at 212-687-0328 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
