SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Police in Milpitas are offering a reward in connection with the arrest of three suspects who allegedly stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and watches from a store inside the Great Mall, police said Friday.
The robbery happened Aug. 25 at Valliani Jewelers, located at 302 Great Mall Drive, according to police.
Three male suspects smashed display cases and made off with the valuables, fleeing the scene in a black four-door sedan.
Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the trio.
