San Diego County Crime Stoppers along with investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Unit are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating two unknown suspects wanted for two separate commercial armed robberies of jewelry stores in San Diego.
On December 5, 2018, at 7:02 p.m., two male suspects robbed the Jared’s Jewelry store located at 1025 Camino De La Reina, in San Diego. On January 12, 2019, at 6:23 p.m., investigators believe the same two suspects robbed the Jared’s Jewelry store located at 11998 Carmel Mountain Road, in San Diego.
In both cases, both suspects ran into the stores. Suspect # 1 (S-1) and Suspect # 2 (S-2) each pointed a handgun at customers and employees inside the stores. S-1 told them not to move, while S-2 looked at the jewelry inside the display cases. S-1 used a hammer or crowbar to break the display cases. S-2 then grabbed various jewelry from inside the display cases and put it inside a duffle bag. Both suspects fled the stores on foot in an unknown direction.
S-1 is described as a Black male, 20’s to early 30’s, 5’8” tall, 145 lbs., wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head, black bandana covering his face, gloves, black tennis shoes with white soles, armed with a black handgun and crowbar.
