Cash, Valuables Stolen
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Investigators from the Palm Bay Police Department’s Major Case Unit are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects wanted for a robbery on Tuesday afternoon.
Police say the pair entered the Orlando Gold Buyers Store at 1465 Georgia Street N.E. near I-95 and Malabar Road about 5 p.m. Tuesday while wearing masks to cover their faces.
The first suspect physically forced the clerk to open the register and took an undisclosed amount of money while the second suspect concentrated on taking items from within the store.
Both suspects then fled through the rear of the store.
There were no weapons seen or implied during the robbery and the clerk was not hurt.
The Orlando Gold Buyers location in Palm Bay is part of a chain of stores in the Central Florida area that purchase unwanted jewelry and other precious metal valuables from private owners wishing to sell them.
The store also appraises valuables before any purchase or sale so customers can obtain the best possible price from the fluctuating gold market.
Police are asking the public to look at the pictured suspects in order to identify them and to pay close attention to their shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and can be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000.
