Subjects broke into Martin’s Jewelry in the Roswell Mall at 4501 N. Main St., sometime between 8 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. Wednesday. The thieves got away with $75,000 worth of jewelry, including gold and silverpieces with colored stones; watches; rings; bracelets, both diamond and pearl; and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Store owner James Martin said the subjects took more than 100 pieces of jewelry.
He admitted the experience has been emotionally trying. “The store has been hit in the past, but nothing like this.”
The thieves also did $200 worth of damage to store windows. “The detectives were in the store for over three hours conducting their investigations, taking fingerprints and collecting evidence,” Martin said.
He asked people who might have any information about the heist to contact Crime Stoppers at 888-594-TIPS (8477) for a reward.
