2 Suspects Wanted for Grab-and-Run Thefts Across 4 States

They most recently stole from two jewelry stores in Utah, according to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance.

New York—Two men are wanted in connection with at least 10 grab-and-run thefts across four states in June alone.

According to an email alert from the Jewelers’ Security Alliance, at 3 p.m. on June 24, two male suspects carried out a grab-and-run, stealing several pieces of gold jewelry from a store in St. George, Utah.

While police were on the scene investigating, a nearby jewelry store reported a second grab-and-run believed to have been perpetrated by the same two men. 

In the second incident, the suspects reportedly fled the scene in a dark-colored Subaru sedan.

JSA said these two suspects, pictured below, are believed to have committed at least nine other grab-and-runs in June in four states: Texas, Nevada, California, and Utah.

The organization reported two of those past cases in JSA Crime Alerts dated June 17 (San Antonio) and June 24 (Burleson, Texas).

JSA provided these images of the two men wanted for allegedly committing grab-and-run thefts across four states.
