Video shows masked men rob Tampa pawn shop, steal jewelry

TAMPA — Three masked men entered a Tampa pawn shop on Monday evening, ordered shoppers to lie on the ground and took up to $20,000 worth of jewelry, according to Tampa Police.

The men — one armed with a small-caliber semi-automatic handgun — entered the Value Pawn & Jewelry at 3102 W Hillsborough Ave. at 6:54 p.m. and ordered everyone to the ground, police said.

The suspects then used a hammer-style tool to shatter a glass case and steal $10,000 to $20,000 in jewelry, police said.

Police said the men fled in what was believed to be a silver, older-model Honda Accord with a possible Florida tag of 532BVR. A fourth suspect was driving the vehicle, police said.

The man with the gun wore a black ski mask and a gray long-sleeved shirt, while the other two had bandanas covering their faces and wore black long-sleeved shirts, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-(800)-873-TIPS (8477).
