TOPANGA (CBSLA.com) — Police confirm they have recovered a tracking device from a Wednesday afternoon smash-and-grab robbery at a jewelry store in Topanga.
The device was recovered just before 8:30 p.m near Skirball Center, near the 405 Freeway, police said.
Police confirmed there was a robbery at a jewelry store at the Topanga Mall just before 8 p.m.
The suspects stole as many as 30 Rolex watches. Sky9’s Stu Mundel says at least one of the watches (or the container) was equipped with a tracking device.
KCAL9’s Rachel Kim reported from the Topanga Mall.
She said four suspects wearing hoodies and masks hit the Ben Bridge jewelry store. At least one of the men had a gun.
Kim said the suspects ordered employees and store security to the ground before smashing the display cases and making off with the watches.
Police said they didn’t have a suspect vehicle description. It was also unclear if any of the watches were recovered.
No shots were fired during the robbery and no injuries were reported.
