Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for a group of men they say held up five businesses at gunpoint across Brooklyn.

Police say between Sept. 19 and this past Saturday, the men robbed Clean City Landry, a Metro PCS mobile store, La Casa de Oro Jewelry and NY Jewelry.

Police say the holdup this past Saturday at NY Jewelry on Hanover Place was caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows three men walk in the store. It then shows one of them holding a 65-year-old employee at gunpoint. Police say the other two robbed the store.

Between all five robberies, police say they stole several electronic items, including nearly a dozen cellphones, $50,000 worth of jewelry, and more than $10,000 in cash.
