Jewelry Store Robber Dressed as Construction Worker in California Heist

About $50,000 in custom jewelry was stolen




A jewelry store in Prunedale, CA, was robbed at gunpoint by a man dressed as a construction worker.

The crime happened at Country Jeweler in the Prune Tree Shopping Center, KSBW-TV reported. About $50,000 in custom jewelry was stolen.

According to a bulletin from the Jewelers’ Security Alliance, the suspect entered the store at 4 p.m. on Oct. 27 wearing an orange helmet, orange vest and bright yellow shirt and carrying a pink bucket. He “asked confusing and disturbing questions about directions” and was asked to leave, JSA reported.

He left, but returned a few minutes later and robbed the store, pulling a handgun from the bucket. During the incident an employee fell and sustained an injury.

Anyone with information is asked to contact JSA at 212-687-0328 or

JSA noted: “Criminals will sometimes wear clothing to lead sales associates to think they are legitimate customers. For example, construction clothing in this case, but also such things as hospital scrubs. Extra caution may be called for.”
