Man attempts to rob jewelry store with bomb threat
June 13, 2014, 05:00 AM

A man claiming to be strapped with a bomb was caught on camera trying to rob a jewelry store in San Bruno Thursday afternoon.

Police arrived at Roop Kala Jewelers on the 600 block of San Mateo Avenue around 3:38 p.m. after a store clerk reported being the victim of an attempted robbery. A man entered the store wearing a black sweater and claimed he had an explosive device, said San Bruno police Lt. Tim Mahon.

Underneath his sweatshirt, the clerk reported seeing either green cloth or tape and wires sticking out, Mahon said. The suspect demanded jewelry or said he would detonate the device. The clerk told the suspect the police were coming and he fled on foot without taking any property, Mahon said.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a normal build and a thin dark mustache. He was last seen running north on Masson Avenue, according to police.

Anyone with information should contact San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100 or can send an anonymous email to sbpdtipline@sanbruno.ca.gov.
