The suspects then demanded money, at which time the jewelers handed over jewelry and cash.
They were not injured during the robbery, according to police.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact Detective David Hickey of the Connecticut State Police at 860-896-3233, or JSA at 212-687-0328 or email@example.com.
Following the robbery, JSA made the following recommendations to jewelers. after the incident.
1. Consider how much jewelry and cash are kept at home—there’s high risk when it’s a large quantity, JSA said.
2. Make sure your home has the appropriate locks, alarms (including an audible alarm), lighting, and cameras (including outdoor cameras and ring doorbell cameras) to offer some protection.
3. Having a dog can also offer some additional protection.
4. Keep car keys by the bedside table, and when a suspicious circumstance occurs, hit the panic alarm to scare away any criminals.
JSA also noted in its email alert another recent violent robbery.
