Vancouver jewelry store robbed in broad daylight
Armed, masked men rammed a stolen truck into Bharti Art Jewellers storefront
A jewelry store was robbed Thursday afternoon by armed, masked men who rammed a stolen truck into the glass storefront in Vancouver.
The incident happened around 2:45 p.m. PT at Bharti Art Jewellers on Main Street near 50th Avenue. After ramming the building with the truck, the suspects walked straight into the business.
Pharmacist Jack Shah, who was working next door at the time said the impact of the truck sent him running outside.
"I just heard a bang sound, like some kind of car accident or something," said Shah. "I was so scared. I saw three people, but they had masks on. It was very hard to tell anything about them."
Police said no arrests made and they are continuing to speak with witnesses and investigate the incident.
There were no reports of any injuries.
