Citrus Heights police have released surveillance photos of two men sought in connection with an April armed robbery in which approximately $250,000 worth of diamonds were stolen from a jewelry store.
The robbery occurred at 8:57 a.m. April 21. Two men in heavy clothing and wearing masks and sunglasses forced their way into Kenny G & Company Fine Jewelers at 5460 Sunrise Blvd. Armed with a hammer and a Taser-type stun gun, the men committed a takeover-style robbery. After taking the diamonds, they left on foot, but video surveillance shows them at a Regional Transit bus stop not far from the jewelry store, according to a police department news release.
Although the surveillance images are of poor quality, police said both men wore dark-colored, mirrored sunglasses and matching work- or gardening-type gloves.
Police ask anyone who recognizes the men, or who has information regarding the robbery, to call the Police Department’s Crime Tip Line at 916-727-5524. Callers can remain anonymous.
