Video shows smash-and-grab robbers at Citrus Heights, California jeweler

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA – March 11, 2024 – Authorities are searching for three subjects in a smash-and-grab robbery at a Citrus Heights jeweler. It happened during the early afternoon Sunday at a jewelry store inside of a mall.

The owner of the business released footage of the robbery from a security camera, which shows the subjects using hammers to break into cases. He opted not to speak on camera because he feared retaliation from the group of subjects.

A spokesperson for the Citrus Heights Police Department said the thieves broke into cases containing gold and diamonds. It was not yet clear exactly how much was stolen.

Of the three subjects seen in the video, only one’s face is shown. The other two were wearing face coverings. All three subjects were men, police said.

All three subjects left the area in a blue sedan and headed north down Sunrise Boulevard, the spokesperson said.

The owner of the jewelry store said he’s been targeted by thieves at multiple locations of his business and fears he won’t be able to come back from this. No one was injured during the robbery.
