An armed robbery crew of seven to eight masked men entered and robbed a San Pablo jewelry store of $500,000 in jewels before escaping in newer model Dodge Charger vehicles Saturday.
Law enforcement was alerted to the theft at 4 p.m. Saturday. It was reported at the H Bee Jewelry store in the 400 block of San Pablo Towne Center.
The suspects were described only as black males, all masked and all carrying handguns. They reportedly entered the business through a back door, threatened the owners and passed the counter displays in favor of access to the store safe.
