SMASH AND GRAB ROBBERY – JOLIET, IL

On 8/8/18, at approximately 10:24 a.m., four subjects perpetrated a smash and grab robbery. A male subject wearing a black Nike shirt entered a retail jewelry store and inquired about engagement rings. After the sales associate greeted him the subject said ” oh you don’t need to come out. I am just looking.” The subject then exited the store. Shortly thereafter, three subjects entered the store wearing medical masks and carrying small sledgehammers. They immediately began smashing the showcases.

The first subject was described as a Black male in his late 20’s. He is 5’8″ and weighs 205 lbs. He was last seen wearing a baseball hat, camouflage shorts, a black Nike t-shirt and gray shoes. The three other subjects were also Black males. They each wore black pants with construction vests, medical masks, and baseball hats. If you have any information regarding these subjects please call the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at 212-687-0328.
