Police Search for 3 Suspects Wanted in Armed Home Invasion of Jewelers
The Jewelers’ Security Alliance provided four tips for jewelers amid concern about the incident.
According to a recent email alert from the Jewelers’ Security Alliance, at around 4 a.m. on Sept. 4, three male suspects entered the Ellington, Connecticut home of a couple who owns a jewelry store, pointed a gun at one of them, and tied them up.
The suspects then demanded money, at which time the jewelers handed over jewelry and cash.
They were not injured during the robbery, according to police.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact Detective David Hickey of the Connecticut State Police at 860-896-3233, or JSA at 212-687-0328 or email@example.com.
Following the robbery, JSA made the following recommendations to jewelers. after the incident.
1. Consider how much jewelry and cash are kept at home—there’s high risk when it’s a large quantity, JSA said.
2. Make sure your home has the appropriate locks, alarms (including an audible alarm), lighting, and cameras (including outdoor cameras and ring doorbell cameras) to offer some protection.
3. Having a dog can also offer some additional protection.
4. Keep car keys by the bedside table, and when a suspicious circumstance occurs, hit the panic alarm to scare away any criminals.
JSA also noted in its email alert another recent violent robbery.
On the afternoon of Sept. 7, a robber fired a gun at a showcase in a downtown Brooklyn, New York jewelry store before robbing it of jewelry and cash.
At the time, two employees were in the store, identified in media reports as Prince Street Jewelers at City Point Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, and the robber handed them a plastic shopping bag to fill.
They left with $100,000 in cash and jewelry.
A video of the incident can be seen here.
According to JSA, the robber was wearing a distinctive square black bookbag.
Those with information should contact JSA at 212-687-0328 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
