Police are looking for help from the public to identify two suspects after more than $100,000 in jewelry was stolen.
On Nov. 9, at about 3 p.m., the Edmonton Police Service was called to a robbery at a jewelry store in Southgate Centre near 50 Avenue and 111 Street.
Officers said two men entered the store at the time of the incident, one pulled out a handgun and the other jumped over the counter and took off with an unknown amount of gold necklaces.

Both men are being described as:
- 5’6” to 6’0”
- Wearing dark clothing, bandanas, toques and gloves
There is currently no description of the getaway driver.
