Two St. Louis men are charged after police investigated a smash and grab robbery of an Edwardsville jewelry store earlier this month. 21 year old Wayne Collins and 18 year old Alex Taylor are each charged with a count of burglary.
Police say the men pulled up in front of Hudson Jewelers in the pre-dawn hours of January 6, smashed the front window and entered the store, stealing items inside. An alarm at the store notified police, but the suspects fled the scene before officers arrived. Edwardsville Police worked with other agencies on the investigation using video surveillance footage and social media. Bond for the men is set at $150,000 each.
