GUNPOINT ROBBERY – ALPINE, CA

On 8/20/19, at approximately 11:30 a.m., a subject entered a jewelry store and inquired about chains. He conversed with a manager.  At that point, another subject entered the store and produced a handgun. After displaying the gun, he zip-tied the manager and then pushed him to the floor. A third subject then entered the store and forced a female associate to face the wall, while the manager was forced to go to the room with the safe.

The manager opened the safe as the gunman had one of his accomplices come to the safe. The accomplice searched the safe and removed several watches. The suspects placed jewelry contents from three cases into an orange bag. The subjects then fled from the store. All three subjects were described as 5’10” Black males. Two of them were thin and one was stocky. All three subjects were between 25-30 years. If you have any information regarding these subjects, please call the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at 212-687-0328.
