Police are investigating a robbery that took place in Williamsburg in broad daylight.
According to the NYPD, the robbery took place last Wednesday at around 2 p.m. An unknown individual entered Blanc’s Gold and Diamonds jewelry store, stealing two gold chains worth over $12,000.
Security video shows the man holding the two chains. The man behind the counter turns away briefly, and the suspect immediately takes off with both chains. The owner of the store tells News 12 those chains were worth over $30,000 together.
“It’s not really surprising because a lot of things happen around here lately, but here it’s crazy," said one resident who lives in the area. "So I’m very surprised, a little surprised because this is a cool area. It’s over there that isn’t very cool, but I’m not that surprised."
No arrests have been made.
