The suspects fled N/B Girard Ave from the scene. The car was seen going S/B Hwy 5 and driving on the shoulder to get around heavy traffic. The car took the Front St off ramp and headed towards downtown. The suspect drove for several blocks and stopped.
There were four suspects that fled from the vehicle. They were later all taken into custody within a short time. The ring was valued at $2500 and was recovered.
UPDATE: During the search of the car, several expensive coats were taken from an earlier grab and run from Chico’s Clothing. The store is located one block away at 7855 Girard Ave. Northern handled.
