HPD searching for suspects in Waimalu jewelry store robbery

Honolulu police are searching for suspects who robbed a jewelry store in Waimalu yesterday.

Two men entered the Pacific Diamond Wedding Rings shop at the Waimalu Plaza Shopping Center at approximately 12:30 p.m. yesterday.

Ted Gonzales, owner of Pacific Diamond Wedding Rings, said today he has been working with police to find the suspects and temporarily closed the shop.

Gonzales said he is looking to hire private security for the shop after the incident, noting the men were bold enough to rob his store midday and yards away from a police substation.

Two employees were present during the robbery, “they’re pretty shaken,” Gonzales said.

Surveillance cameras captured two men entering the jewelry store, using an axe to break the jewelry display cases and taking off with the merchandise.

Police said Sunday no arrests have been made.
