Police searching for 2 in Miami jewelry store heist

MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are searching for two men who, they said, were caught on camera after they robbed a jewelry store in Downtown Miami at gunpoint, Saturday afternoon.

Miami Police responded to the scene of the heist at Just in Time Jewelry, located inside the Seybold Building, along North Miami Avenue and First Street, at around 12:20 p.m.

Investigators said one of the subjects pulled out a gun, and the other tied up the store owner. They took off with around $300,000 in watches and cash, which they put into a black messenger bag.

The duo then got into a black, four-door C-Class Mercedes-Benz driven by a getaway driver. Police said one of the subjects appears to have a limp on his right leg.
