Police seek identity of jewelry store robbers

SURPRISE, AZ. (January 15, 2014)… Surprise Police are seeking the identity of three males who attempted to rob a jewelry store at 13700 W Bell Rd in Surprise around 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday, January 14, 2014. 

During the robbery attempt, one of the three males displayed a gun and told a jewelry store employee he was robbing the store.  At almost the same moment, the jewelry store employee displayed his own gun to the robbers causing all three males to immediately flee from the store.

Another robbery was committed a short time later at a pharmacy in the City of Peoria.  Police believe the same three males are responsible for both crimes.

The first suspect is described as a black male with a lighter complexion, approximately 18-22 years old, about 5’09”, wearing a red Cincinnati Reds baseball cap, black sweatshirt, dark jeans, and dark sunglasses.

The second suspect is described as white or Hispanic male, about 6’, wearing a black ski mask, black pants, and black shoes.

The third suspect is described as a darker skinned male.

Digital images taken from store security cameras are included in this release to help identify the three males who committed these crimes.  Surprise Police are asking anyone who knows the identity of the suspects to contact the Surprise Police Department at (623)222-4000, or call Silent Witness at (480)WITNESS to remain anonymous.
