The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to solve a robbery that occurred at Elsa’s Jewelry at 4010 Meadowdale Boulevard on Thursday, May 13.
Five suspects entered the store separately at 10:29 a.m. and appeared to be shopping. Two of the suspects struck the clerk with a gun, forced her to an office and restrained her. The suspects fled on foot after they stole cash, jewelry, phone cards, cashier’s checks and perfume.
Surveillance cameras captured images of the five suspects, who are Hispanic males in their mid 20s to mid 30s. Photos of the suspects can be viewed at www.crimesolvers.net.
