Yuba City police released surveillance footage Friday of men suspected of robbing two local jewelry stores last month.
– Over $80,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from Hillcrest Jewelers early June 7 – a Friday. Yuba City police responded to the 229 Clark Avenue store around 4:45 a.m. to an alarm, and discovered broken display cases and over 100 items taken.
It was the first robbery the store had experienced in its 31 years in business, according to Appeal-Democrat archives. One particular bunch of items stolen that would be easy to identify if the robbers attempt to sell them: multiple watches with private labels on the dial reading “Hillcrest.”
– Bombay Jewelers at 440 Palora Avenue was robbed just before
4 a.m. Thursday, June 13, and around $5,000 worth of jewelry was stolen.
Both burglaries are still under investigation and it’s possible the two are related, according to a Yuba City Police Department press release Friday.
