Cross Creek Pawn and Jewelry Robbery
On March 29, Cross Creek Pawn and Jewelry at 7129 Cliffdale Rd was robbed after suspects broke into the building where jewelry and cash were held.
Officers were first called to the business around 22:00 hours in response to an outside alarm activation. Officers walked around the building with a representative of the business and did not see anything to indicate was out of place.
A few hours later, around the 3:30 in the morning, an interior alarm was set off. When officers arrived, they found that holes had been cut into the building to gain access.
Detectives say there were two or more suspects involved in the robbery. If anyone has information, please call detectives at (910) 433-1856 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
