Almost a month after a brazen armed robbery at a jewelry store at the Galleria at Sunset, Henderson Police say they still haven't made any arrests.

Police spokesman Keith Paul said Friday there was no additional information to release about the Feb. 12 robbery.

Paul said the incident was the first “smash-and-grab” robbery of its kind in Henderson in years.

Three suspects wanted in the robbery are still at large after they entered the Ben Bridge Jeweler store in the mall about 5:45 p.m., close to closing time, that Sunday.

According to police, one suspect armed with a gun ordered employees to stand against a wall while the other two suspects used hammers to smash glass cases containing jewelry. The group swiped an undisclosed amount of merchandise before fleeing the mall.

Police said the suspects were wearing masks and gloves, concealing their gender.

Although no one was injured and no shots were fired, the mall was evacuated, police said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Henderson Police at (702) 267-4750 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or visit the Crime Stoppers website.
