Suspects in Nov. robbery of jeweler still at large

Start­Frag­ment

Phil­adelphia po­lice last week re­newed their plea for in­form­a­tion about the men who robbed a North­east jew­elry store at gun­point in Novem­ber.

Se­cur­ity cam­er­as in­side Be­lag­gio Jew­elry, at 2115 Cottman Ave., filmed the en­tire Nov. 4 epis­ode. At 4:50 p.m., two men armed with guns entered the store and forced three em­ploy­ees to a rear of­fice. The rob­bers then re­moved trays con­tain­ing vari­ous types of jew­elry from dis­play cases and a safe.

The men fled the store on foot but were soon spot­ted by an off-duty Phil­adelphia po­lice of­ficer, who saw them get in­to a green Ford Con­tour with a Pennsylvania plate pos­sibly end­ing in “2204.” The get­away vehicle was parked in a lot be­hind the Sears Tire store.

As the rob­bers drove away, the off-duty of­ficer lost sight of them.

One rob­ber was de­scribed as black, 40 years old and 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall. He had close-cut hair or might have been bald, with a dark com­plex­ion. He wore a dark suit and leath­er jack­et and car­ried a black hand­gun.

The oth­er rob­ber was de­scribed as black, 35 to 40 years old and 6 feet tall. He had close-cut hair and wore a gray sweat shirt, blue jeans and brown sunglasses with gold frames. He car­ried a sil­ver hand­gun.

The rob­bers are con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous. To re­port their iden­tit­ies or loc­a­tions, call 215-686-TIPS or vis­it www.philly­po­lice.com. Tip­sters may re­main an­onym­ous. ••
