Mint Hill Police Looking for Armed Robbery Suspects

On Thursday night, at approx. 8:30pm, two masked men, including one armed with a handgun, robbed the Mint Hill jewelry store, Mr. Professional Jewelry at 4709 Margaret Wallace Road.

An employee at the store told Mint Hill Police that the two men came inside wearing masks and one man jumped over the counter and knocked the employee to the ground before grabbing money from the register.  Meanwhile, the other suspect pointed a gun at the employee, MH police said.

Officers said they searched the area after the robbery but were unable to find the suspects. Police released surveillance images showing the pair in the area just before the robbery and asked for the public’s help to identify them.
