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. 

Anyone who recognizes the individual(s) in the surveillance photos or has any information, should call YCPD at 822-4660, or submit an anonymous tip at https://tinyurl.com/yak3wmy3.
