Police release photos of Stony Point jewelry store robbers

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)–The Richmond Police Department needs the public’s help to identify and find the men in the above photos who robbed a business at gunpoint Monday night at Stony Point Fashion Park.

This is the third jewelry store robbery at a local mall within five months. Police said that approximately 7:45 p.m. Monday night a group of three robbers made off with bags of jewelry from Fink’s Jewelers at the mall.

Police told CBS 6 News that three men entered the shop, two were armed. They quietly made their demands, with guns displayed.

There were three employees in the building at the time. A few witnesses outside saw the group run off. The group escaped with several bags of jewelry. No one was injured.

Police released descriptions of the three suspects late Tuesday:

  • A black male in his early twenties, 5 feet 7 inches tall, average build, full beard, who was last seen wearing a yellow baseball cap and a waist length coat
  • A black male in his early twenties, 5 feet 7 inches tall, an average build, who was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap and dark colored jacket and pants
  • A black male in his forties, 5 feet 10 inches tall, above average build, who was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap.

Detectives do not believe this robbery is connected to the one that occurred at the Stony Point Foot Locker on March 23. There will be increased patrols in that neighborhood, police said.

Anyone with any information about this crime is asked to call Detective William Cutshall at 646-1028 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.

Citizens can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
