The holdup happened at Cascade Custom Jewelers, 10122 Pacific Ave. South, after the men talked their way into the business. As a security measure, employees let customers into the store rather than allowing multiple walk-ins.
One of the men pointed a gun at two employees and demanded the jewelry, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
Surveillance footage shows the men were inside the store for about seven minutes.
“When they pointed the gun, they were yelling at us and instructing us to get everything out,” employee Falon Boole told KIRO-TV.
The men duct taped the employees before fleeing with an unknown amount of jewelry.
Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and charging of the suspects. Tipsters can call 253-591-5959.
