The store owner spoke exclusively to KRON4, saying he is now considering closing up his shop. Police have not made arrests.
The two clerks were not injured during the robbery, but one has since quit their job. That disturbing video has touched a nerve and prompted other crime victims to come forward in the same San Jose neighborhood.
KRON4 EXCLUSIVE: Armed smash and grab at San Jose jewelry store caught on camera In the video, you can see a man walk into the store pointing a gun at the employees. He then starts smashing the jewelry cases and stealing merchandise — along with a second robber.
The disturbing video of the robbery at San Jose’s Plaza Jewelers has gotten the attention of City Hall, says owner Cesar Pascal who says he spent 15 minutes on the phone last night with Mayor Sam Liccardo. News owners say they are being victimized even as they struggle to get back on their feet amid the pandemic.
The video shows a man smash the front window and then ransacks the store, stealing only hair products and salon tools at first, only to return later, making off with the cash register. More surveillance video surfaced Wednesday of a break-in at a salon just a few doors down from the jewelry store. Violent robbery on San Francisco street caught on camera
