The suspects are two men, who were both armed with a handgun, and had their faces covered, one by a handkerchief, and another by a half face helmet.

One of said suspects pointed a gun at the security guard and ordered him to drop, then took his caliber 9mm firearm with Serial No. GD911130833. The other suspect held a gun to the cashier and the appraiser.

One of the suspects then broke the glass display rack containing various pieces of jewelry, the investigators disclosed.

Police Supt. Alex S. Pederio, Assistance Chief of Police here, said his office received a call from a concerned citizen that two armed men entered the pawnshop and carted away pieces of costly jewelry.

Among these were bracelets and necklaces with values ranging from as low as Php32,500 and as high as Php103,900.

A metal wrench that the suspect allegedly used to break the glass display rack was recovered by the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) of the Regional Crime Laboratory Office 5 at the place of the incident.

The Legazpi City Police Station is currently conducting a follow-up investigation for the recovery of the stolen items, and the arrest of the suspects, who remain unidentified as of the time of this writing.— BICOLSTANDARD.COM
