Newnan Police need the public’s help in identifying three men wanted for a smash-and-grab robbery at a jewelry store last week.

Surveillance video showed the men smashing the glass on the display cases while a third man stood guard at the front door. Police said this is the third Jared store hit by smash-and-grab thieves in the last two months in metro Atlanta. Stores in Kennesaw and in Dunwoody have had similar crimes.

That Jared store is in the Ashly Park retail area of Newnan. Police said it happened last Friday night when the three men entered the store about 8:30 p.m. That was about 30 minutes before closing. They wore hoodies drawn up tight around their faces and they were wearing gloves. Police said the video showed the men went straight for the diamonds.

This is an Atlanta Crime Stoppers case, so there is a reward for information that leads to an arrest. Call 404-577-TIPS.
