Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Investigators are on the hunt for information about sophisticated jewelry thieves, who sawed through the roof of Prestige Pawn & Jewelry and stole over $200,000 in jewelry. Sunday afternoon on December 14, 2014, officers were summoned to Prestige Pawn & Jewelry after the business owner noticed much of his jewelry inventory was missing from the display cabinets.
Investigators responded to the scene to document the crime scene, and it was determined that the thieves entered the business at 3:00 a.m. early Sunday morning. To enter and exit the business, the thieves disabled the alarm system and used a saw to cut a hole in the roof.
Two unidentified suspects, with faces covered by masks, entered the business and targeted various types of jewelry. The business suffered over $200,000 in stolen jewelry and $5,000 in damages to the building.
Investigators hope someone in the community will recognize the suspects and their clothing from the surveillance images. When looking at the surveillance images, it is important to notice the distinct features of the clothing and shoes.
