Two men smash jewelry cases with hammer in $2 million Sugar Land heist

Sugar Land police are searching for two men seen on surveillance video smashing display cases inside a jewelry store and running away with stolen jewelry valued at $2 million.

The men entered Hutton`s Jewelry & Gifts, 2735 Town Center Blvd., just after 12:20 p.m. on Jan. 10. One suspect reportedly approached an employee to ask about an engagement ring, and the second man joined them soon after.

The second man took a hammer from inside his jacket and smashed two display cases, one in the rear of the store and another at the exit. The first man followed and removed jewelry from each display case as they ran out of the store.

The first suspect was wearing a black jacket, red/black ball cap and faded blue jeans. He was in his early 30s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed about 200 pounds.

The second suspect was wearing what appeared to be a white floppy hat, a black jacket and faded blue jeans. He was in his early 30s, 6 feet tall, and weighed about 220 pounds.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
