Two captured after attempted jewelry theft

 Police say an employee of an Ellisville jewelry store fired a gun at two men who robbed the store this morning.

The incident started just after 10 AM when one of the suspects asked an employee to show him an expensive watch. The suspect then grabbed the watch and ran in the parking lot. Two employees chased the suspect out of the store. Officers say there was a physical altercation between the suspects and employees in the parking lot. But, when the suspect got into a waiting car, one of the employees pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the suspects.

Police captured the suspects after a short car chase ended in a crash near the Chesterfield mall. Officers recovered the watch the men had stolen--a Rolex worth nearly $35,000.

The suspects have not been identified.

It took under a minute for thieves to grab nearly 20,000 dollars worth of jewelry from a Cahokia pawn shop last night.

The crime was caught by surveillance cameras and the video shows an organized group of criminals. The men--all in masks--broke the front window, walked up to a jewelry cabinet, broke the glass, and started grabbing jewelry. Police said the suspects were in and out of the store within 30 seconds and made off with 150 pieces of jewelry worth around $20,000.

The suspects drove off in Chevy Impala.
