Police searching for Pembroke Pines mall jewelry bandits

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are looking for two men who were caught on surveillance video stealing jewelry from a store in Pembroke Pines.

The crooks were seen looking around the busy Elite Fine Jewelry store at the Pembroke Lakes Mall on June 16.

One of the men served as a lookout while the other reached over a counter, slid the door open and grabbed a tray of jewelry from the display box.

Officials said the duo appeared to be in their late 40s.
