NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department is searching for a group of armed robbers who hit a well-known jewelry store in a busy part of town and got away.
Detectives say three armed suspects, a white woman and two black men, entered the Genesis Diamonds at 3742 Hillsboro Pike near Green Hills Mall just before 6:30 p.m. Friday. The woman went into the store first to serve as a distraction. Then the two men came in behind her and used small dumbbells to prop the doors open. One of the robbers used a tool to smash a glass case and then grabbed multiple pieces of jewelry. The three then ran from the jewelry store into a white SUV.
The female suspect involved was facing away from the security camera. She was wearing a black tank top, a black ball cap and white slacks. There appears to be a patch or bandage on her right shoulder blade that may be covering a tattoo.
