BUCKHEAD -- Investigators are working to find two men who snatched $30,000 in jewelry from the Belk department store at Phipps Plaza on Wednesday morning.
Just minutes after 11:00 a.m., officers responded to a call about a theft at Belk, an anchor store at the Peachtree Road mall.
Investigators determined that two men entered the store, and one of them used a hammer to break into a jewelry display case. The second suspect took a tray of diamond earrings, and both men immediately ran from the store.
They were last seen entering a parking deck adjacent to Phipps.
According to Officer John Chafee, the earrings are worth around $30,000.
Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to report to Crime Stoppers (404) 577-8477, where they may remain anonymous.
Chafee also said callers may be eligible for a $2,000 reward.
