If you thought that you’d seen it all, then you’re in for the surprise of your life. In the ‘most imaginative ways to rob a store,’ we present you the case of a Bucks County citizen who came up with the most unusual and inconspicuous way to rob a jewelry store – using a heavy-duty sledgehammer.
The Bucks County law enforcement authorities are on the lookout for a Caucasian male who broke into the Buck Kohl’s store and stole $100,000 worth of jewelry and watches. According to the store’s security tape, the incident occurred on Wednesday, at 3:15 am, the Buck Kohl’s jewelry store located at 1641 Big Oak Road (Lower Makefield Township).
As baffling as it would might sound, the Bucks County police department has yet to identify the man who broke into the jewelry store on Wednesday. What they do know is his modus operandi. According to the PD’s official spokespersons, on Wednesday, at approximately 3:15 am, an unknown Caucasian male broke down one of the store’s stone walls using a sledgehammer.
After the wall crumbled, the man casually entered the jewelry store and took everything that was locked in the display cases. The police and the store’s owner declared that the total value of the goods is somewhere between $60,000 and $100,000.
The security tape shows that the made off with several small pieces of jewelry, a couple of Citizen Eco watches, and an expensive black diamond collection. After he had taken the items from the jewelry store, the man departed using the same makeshift exit.
Unfortunately, no other street security cameras capture the man who robbed the Buck Kohl’s store. To this end, Buck’s County Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in order to apprehend the jewelry thief.
The department also posted the perpetrator’s description. According to the document, the thief is a Caucasian male in his 30s. It would also seem that at the time of the robbery, the man was wearing a mask. He was dressed in a black hooded park which had two white laces. The thief was also wearing a pair of Nike sneakers, and carried a tool sack made from canvas.
Anyone who saw the suspect or anyone dressed like that is asked to contact the Lower Makefield detectives at 267 – 274 – 1160. Do not try to apprehend the suspect alone because the police department has reasons to believe that he is armed.
