Denton police are looking for three men in connection with an armed robbery of an area jeweler in the 200 block of Interstate 35E shortly before noon Saturday.

Police said while one of the masked men controlled the employees, another smashed several display cases and took the jewelry from inside.

Surveillance camera footage obtained from the business shows a third suspect, believed to be the driver, buzzing into the business door while the two masked suspects exit a 2012 or 2013 Red Buick Enclave before entering the business.

All three men fled the scene traveling southbound on I-35E in the Enclave, police said.

Orlando Hinojosa, spokesman for Denton police, said no employees were injured and the amount of jewelry taken is unknown at this time.

Both front and rear license plates of the getaway vehicle had placards for “Classic Chevrolet” but no actual license plates in place, according to a news release from the Denton Police Department.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Investigator Keith Martin at 940-349-7961 or e-mail
