SMASH & GRAB – JOLIET, IL

On 10/9/19, at approximately 4:43 p.m., two male subjects entered a jewelry store and walked directly to a solitaire case. One of the subjects revealed a hammer from inside his jacket. He then smashed the display case. The subjects were in the store for 2 minutes. They took as many items as they could and then fled.  Approximately 20 minutes before the robbery, a male subject came into the store asking to see promise/engagement rings. He stated his budget was $10,000. It is believed the subject was part of the theft.
