On 8/30/23, at 7:41 p.m, a jewelry store experienced a smash and grab robbery. Upon entry into the store, the first subject began to smash into two gold cases with a large sledgehammer while the second subject began to select and conceal jewelry pieces into the black bag he was carrying.  After the first subject successfully created openings into the two smashed cases, he joined the second subject in selecting various gold items and concealing them into his pocket.Â

Thirty seconds into the robbery, the security guard who was posted at nearby store, approached the scene to intervene and as a result, the subjects fled without further incident. The subjects escaped with various gold pieces.

Subject #1 — A male black wearing an orange hooded sweat top, a mask, dark pants, gloves, and black tennis shoes.

Subject #2 — A male wearing an orange hooded Nike sweat top, a mask, gloves, and light colored pants
