PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Phoenix police are looking for a man who robbed a J. C. Penny store.
Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos said the suspect pretended to be a customer at the jewelry counter on Feb. 27, and when the clerk unlocked the glass counter, the suspect got out a handgun and jumped over the counter.
Police said the suspect put about $13,000 worth of jewelry in a white garbage bag and fled the store located in the 1700 block of West Bethany Home Road.
He was seen getting in the passenger side of a 1996-1997 white Chevy Suburban with a silver roof rack. The vehicle was driven by an unknown man.
The robbery suspect is described as a 6' tall black man, between the ages of 40 to 49.
Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
