Authorities Thursday sought the public’s help to identify two men who stole over $200,000 worth of jewelry from a Westminster mall.

The suspects entered the Kay Jewelers store located at the Wesminster Mall at about 3:50 p.m. Monday and used a sledgehammer to smash glass cases before grabbing the jewelry and fleeing the scene in a rented sedan, according to the Westminster Police Department.

One suspect was last seen wearing a green puffy jacket, black pants, an orange backpack, gloves and a face mask. The other suspect was last seen wearing a black Puma hoodie, black Adidas-style pants, black gloves and a face mask.

The rental vehicle was described as a possible 2020 gray Toyota Corolla with the Texas license plate MXR5851.

Anyone with information on the robbery was asked to contact WPD Detective Lopez at 714-548-3773 or mlopez@wesminster-ca.gov.
