Wedding Ring Bandits

The Sacramento Police Department is seeking information on suspects responsible for a jewelry store robbery.

On July 27, 2010, at 4:48 p.m., officers responded to the 4600 block of Franklin Boulevard on a jewelry store robbery.  The suspects entered the store armed with a sawed-off shotgun and ordered the employees onto the ground.  While one suspect held the employees at gun point, the other suspect began to steal jewelry from the display cases.  The suspects grabbed engagement and wedding rings, placed them into a black bag, and fled the business.  A gold Honda Pilot was seen in the area and may be related. 

The suspects are described as two male Blacks, 16-17 years old, wearing dark colored hooded sweatshirts.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).  Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
