On 11/25/22, at approximately 8:30 p.m., a jewelry store was the victim of a smash and grab robbery. A lone male entered the store on his cell phone and sat at the front bridal case. While on the phone, a second male entered the store and waited near the first subject. A third male was observed on the phone as he entered the store. The first subject said he was interested in a diamond ring for himself or his dad, and he wanted to see the largest ring. They asked if the diamonds were real and wanted the team member to test them.

During the conversation, the male in the blue hoodie stood up, pulled out a hammer, and began smashing the diamond fashion showcase. Two of the male subjects then reached into the case grabbing a handful of merchandise before being run out of the mall by mall security. No injuries were reported. A report was filed with Little Rock Police.

The subjects’ descriptions are listed below:

Subject 1: Male, black, medium build, with a light complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie over his head, a mask, acid-washed jeans, and black tennis shoes.
Subject 2: Male, black, medium build, with a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie over his head, a ball cap, light-colored jeans, and white tennis shoes.
Subject 3: Male, black, taller, with a heavier build. He was last seen wearing a grey hoodie over his head, a mask, faded/distressed jeans, and black and white tennis shoes.
