AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department needs help identifying a group of robbers that targeted a jewelry store in southwest Austin last month.
The robbery took place Feb. 13 at about 6:48 p.m. at a store in the 2900 block of South Capital of Texas Highway.
First, two suspects entered the store before the robbery and stayed inside until it happened, APD reported. Then, other suspects entered, conducted a “smash and grab” and threatened one of the workers. They all ran away from the jewelry store and possibly left in a car.
