The suspects entered the Zales Diamond Store at the above address. One suspect stood in the middle of the store and displayed a gun as the other suspect, armed with the hammers, went to a display case containing wedding bands. The suspect struck the case multiple times until it shattered and then stole the rings from the case. Both suspects then fled the mall on foot. They were last seen getting in to an older model, white quad cab pickup truck, possibly a Toyota Tacoma, with no bedliner, and a spare tire in the bed of the truck.
During the course of the investigation, officers were contacted by investigators in the Sugarland Police Department, regarding the suspects' possible involvement in another incident that occurred in Sugarland Texas.
