After locking the front door, the white female suspect proceeded to remove various items of jewelry from the display cases. The employees stated the suspect had entered the store one day prior to the robbery and asked about the same items. Surveillance photos appear to show the suspect’s vehicle as a red 2009/2010 Honda Civic LX with tinted windows.

The white female and black male are also suspected in the armed robbery of a Jared Jewelry store in Woodstock in April and a Zale’s Jewelry store in Dawsonville in August. Both robberies mirrored the Panama City Beach robbery and the suspects appear to be of the same build in reviewed surveillance video.

On September 2nd, the Jared Jewelry store in Bluffton, South Carolina, was robbed by a white female with a hand gun. The suspect description of the female also matches the previous three jewelry store robberies.

Suspects are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information can contact the FBI Jacksonville Field Office at 904-248-7000.

The Jewelers’ Security Alliance is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of the female robbery suspect pictured below that occurred on August 11, 2014 at Reeds Jewelers located in Pier Park. If you have information, please call JSA on its Reward Hotline at 800-325-1883 or the Panama City Beach Police Department at (850) 233-5000.

If you wish to remain anonymous, measures will be taken to insure the protection of your identity, yet allow the payment of the reward.
