Several people robbed a jewelry store in Riverside and stole over $100,000 worth of valuables, police said.
At around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Daniel’s Jewelers, a jewelry store in Riverside Plaza, was robbed, officials said. A video of the crime shows people running from the store, one with a large black trash bag. The suspects were all wearing hoodies and masks to cover their identity.
According to the Riverside Police Department, the thieves got away with more than $100,000 worth of jewelry.
Officer Ryan Railsback, a spokesman for Riverside police, said they had no suspects at this point but that authorities were following up on leads.
Railsback said that the robbery was similar to other jewelry store heists in Orange County, Los Angeles County, and the Inland area.
The Ontario Mills Mall suffered a smash-and-grab robbery in which the thieves smashed the glass protecting the jewelry, shoved the valuables in a plastic bin, and ran out of the mall, video shows. A jewelry store in Irvine was also robbed recently with suspects filling a plastic bin full of jewelry.
Riverside PD is working together with these other police departments to see if there is a connection across these jurisdictions, Railsback said.
An employee at Daniel’s Jewelers declined to comment on the robbery.
