NC snatch and run theives potentially spotted in Raleigh


The North Carolina Jewelers Association (NCJA) has reported the likely spotting of snatch and run jewelry theives who have robbed a Kannapolis, NC store and we’re seen in Greensboro, NC casing another store.

Bailey’s Fine Jewelry in Raleigh had just read the Southern Jewelery News article (“NC jeweler victim of snatch and run”, Jan. 2010) about the Village Jewelry (Kannapolis) robbery.  A short time later, a pregnant woman and a friend came into the store with the same story they told at the Kannapolis store.  It became more coincidental that the couple exited the store and drove away in a black 4-door Honda Accord with NC plates as reported in the previous robbery.

Bailey’s reported the black male is 6’2” and was wearing a blue down jacket with blue baseball cap.  The 5’5” black female appeared to be pregnant and was wearing extra large gold twisted hoop earrings.  It is believed that they may be part of a group as the male description varies from the Kannapolis one.

Be alerted that these folks appear to be moving east as they have been in Kannapolis, Greensboro and now Raleigh.

The North Carolina Jewelers Association (NCJA) continues to work diligently keeping their members informed of the latest security issues affecting their membership.
