Brea police seek two men in jewelry store smash-and-grab robbery
Police are searching for two males who stole items from a Brea-area jewelry store in a smash-and-grab robbery, authorities said Saturday.
The suspects entered the Kay Jewelers store, located at 1010 Brea Mall Road, just before 7 p.m. Friday and used hammers to break glass display cases and steal the items inside, according to the Brea Police Department.
The suspects fled the scene following the robbery. They were described as two Black males, in their late teens to early 20s, about 5-feet-9-inches to 6-feet tall, weighing between 170 and 180 pounds. They were last seen wearing black hoodies, red sweatpants and face masks.
Some callers reported hearing gunshots, but investigators determined that it was the sound of the hammers striking the glass.
Brea police urged anyone with information regarding the smash-and-grab robbery to call them at 714-990-7166.
