WALNUT CREEK -- Police on Monday released still photos from a video of a white SUV that they say shows six people who may have been involved in the burglary of a jewelry store earlier this month.
Nobody has been arrested in connection with the Aug. 15 burglary at Tiffany and Co., located at the corner of Broadway Avenue and Mt. Diablo Boulevard in the downtown area. At about 5:45 a.m. that morning, someone backed a stolen white pickup truck into the front entrance in a smash-and-grab that netted some small items of jewelry, police said.
Photos from the video, taken from a security camera at a nearby business, show six people meeting in a parking lot in the downtown area before the burglary, Walnut Creek police Lt. Steve Gorski said. Some of the suspects also are seen removing the license plates from a white Chevy Blazer that police said was used as a getaway vehicle.
The stolen truck used to plow through the front door also is shown, as are two other vehicles. Police also are searching for a new-looking black Cadillac Sedan and a dark, possibly black, mid 2000s Chevy Tahoe or something similar, Walnut Creek police Lt. Steve Gorski said. Both cars were believed to have been in the area during the burglary, and police believe one person was in each car, Gorski said.
The driver of the Chevy Blazer appears to be a Hispanic male with brown hair in his early to mid 20s, with an average height and medium build, Gorski said. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap.
Another suspect associated with the pickup truck appears to be a white or Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches or 5 feet, 9 inches with a slim build. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie and a baseball hat, Gorski said. A third suspect is either a white or Hispanic male, approximately 6 feet tall with a medium build who also was wearing a hoodie and baseball cap, Gorski said.
Anyone with information is urged to call Walnut Creek police at 925-943-5877.
