Police in Edwardsville are investigating a “smash and grab” robbery of a jewelry store early Wednesday. Authorities say two men broke into the Hudson Jewelers store in the 6600 block of Edwardsville Crossing around 6:15am, and by the time police arrived just minutes later, the suspects were gone.
Police say a review of the video surveillance footage shows what appear to be two male suspects pulling up to the front of the store in a dark colored SUV. An object was used to break the glass at the front of the store where the suspects entered. The suspects then grabbed merchandise and fled the scene in the vehicle. One suspect was wearing a mask the other did not. Anyone with information can call Edwardsville Police at 656-2131 or the anonymous tip line at 692-7552.
