Rockville jewelry heist caught on video

Montgomery County detectives continue to search for a thief who swept up trays of jewelry after appearing to fumble with his gun during a Wednesday afternoon robbery of Gold City Jewelers at 451 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.

A surveillance tape shows the suspect entering the store at about 12:40 p.m. and threatening the clerks with a gun as they began pulling out trays from display cases. No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspect fled in a black four-door vehicle with Pennsylvania tag GPA 7731, police said. He was described as Middle Eastern, between 30 and 40 years of age, 5’10” to 6’1” tall and weighing 180 to 220 pounds. He had brown eyes and black hair, which may have been a wig. He also had a mustache.

Anyone with information about either the suspect or robbery is asked to call the Montgomery County Police Robbery Section at 240-773-5100. Anonymous tips can be left by calling Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
