Suspects Sought in Valentine's Day Jewelry Store Robbery

2 men snatch $100K worth of rings from Napa store.

 

Napa Police are seeking information on two suspects in a robbery on Valentine's Day from the Ultra Diamond and Gold Store at 861 Factory Stores Drive.

According to police, two black male adults wearing masks and gloves and with a handgun entered the jewelry story at about 1:45 p.m. on Feb. 14.

The suspects smashed several jewelry display cases and stole approximately $100,000 worth of jewelry in the form of rings, police said. A similar jewelry store robbery took place in January.

One of the suspects choked out and threw a customer to the ground during the robbery. This customer was described as an older Asian male.

The suspects fled the store, running in a northbound direction, and got into their getaway vehicle, a gold Chevy Malibu with paper dealer plates.

The suspects left the area northbound on Freeway Drive. Responding officers were checking the area and located the gold Chevy Malibu at the apartments on Golden Gate Circle.

Witnesses in that area stated the suspects got into a light-colored, possibly white Chevy pick-up truck and drove out of the area. Investigator Andy Hess has been assigned this case.

If you have any information or witnessed this robbery or the getaway vehicle being left on Golden Gate Circle, please call him at 707-257-9507.

It's likely all the stones were display glass. It's not so much the stones they are after as the precious metals.

How awful! I've shopped there a few times and was always treated nicely by their staff.
