David Boehm, retired NYPD Lieutenant and COO of Security USA, Inc. 212-594-4475 explains the possibility a heist at a midtown jewelry store was ordered by a rival store owner.
Police are looking for suspects in a jewelry store robbery in Midtown Tuesday afternoon, less than a block from the Veterans Day Parade route, and they're hoping new surveillance video will lead to arrests. Two armed suspects hit the store on West 47th Street off Fifth Avenue just after 2:30 p.m. The two, one posing as a deliveryman, held employees of an eighth-floor store called Watch Standard at gunpoint and forced a worker to open the safe. Authorities said three men and one woman were in the office, including a 56-year-old man, his 27-year-old daughter, his 32-year-old son and his son's 37-year-old friend. They were robbed of cash and jewelry, and the 56-year-old was apparently pistol whipped in the head before being ordered to open the safe.
