With no new leads, the investigation into the November robbery of a Canton jewelry store has hit a snag.

Detectives with the Canton Police Department are currently in a holding pattern in their investigation into the Cartersville Jewelry Exchange store robbery, said agency Spokesman Lt. Jeff Tucker.

"They really don’t have any other leads," he said. "It’s sort of at a stand still right now."

Tucker said Canton police have put information on Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta to encourage witnesses to come forward to no avail.

They've also uploaded information, including the descriptions of the suspects, onto Metro Alert, a law enforcement database where agencies can share and access information. 

On Friday Nov. 22, two armed men entered Cartersville Jewelry Exchange at 1552 Riverstone Parkway Suite 170 just before 11:30 a.m. and ordered employees to get to the ground. 

Police say the suspects then cracked open some of the glass displays, took jewelry from the store and fled the scene driving a dark green Ford F-150 as the getaway vehicle.

A witness followed the suspects near the Hidden Creek subdivision where police recovered the vehicle, which they suspect was carjacked from Atlanta. The men, however, fled on foot. 

An assistant manager at the jewelry store said employees were not allowed to comment on the crime and the investigation.

Since the vehicle was stolen from Atlanta, Lt. Tucker added Canton detectives are also trying to coordinate with their counterparts at the Atlanta Police Department to see if they could garner any new information to help solve the case.

Tucker noted he and detectives don't believe the robbery has any connection to the Shell convenience store robbery.

"The Shell station (robbery) is a whole different scenario," he added, noting detectives ruled out any possible connection. 

The jewelry store robbery suspects are described as African-American. One suspect stands around 6'2 tall, has a medium build and was wearing dark-colored jeans, a red sweatshirt with a hood and white tennis shoes. The other suspect is believed to be six feet tall and was seen wearing a grey hoodie.

Police ask that if you have any information to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-TIPS.
