VAN NUYS ( — Detectives are asking for the public’s help Wednesday to identify burglary suspects caught on surveillance video.

On February 2, 2013, at about 3:50 p.m., two suspects entered a jewelry store in the area of Coldwater Canyon Ave and Riverside Drive armed with hammers, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Once the suspects entered the business, they started smashing the display cases and removing several watches.

The owner tried to stop the suspects but was pushed away by the two suspects. The suspects with the items ran out of the location and into a light colored compact vehicle, police said.

The same two suspects were seen on a video in the store the day before posing as customers.

One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic male, 25-30 years old. He is 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighs about 170 pounds.

The second suspect is described as a 20- to 25 year-old Hispanic male. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective O’Shea at 818-374-0087 or Detective Flores at 818-374-0079.
