Suspect two reached inside the smashed display case and stole a display tray containing an unknown quantity of gold wedding bands, which the owner estimated valued at $4,000. Suspect three acted as a look out for the group and all three suspects fled with the jewelry store when the owner defended himself and his property with a baseball bat.

Anyone with information on any of the suspects in this crime are asked to contact Officer C. Donahue at 714-245-8268, Email: or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
