PHOENIX -- Silent Witness is increasing the reward for information about an armed robbery at a pawn shop back in April. The reward, which used to be $1,000, is now up to $10,000, for information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the suspect or suspects in this crime.

Phoenix police say two armed men walked into the Cash America - Super Pawn at 38th Avenue and Indian School on April 12, just after 9 a.m. The men were wearing all-black clothing and masks, and had their guns drawn.

The suspects reportedly ordered store employees and customers to lie on the ground. One of the suspects jumped over the counter with a gun in his hand while the other suspect broke the glass display case, removed jewelry and placed it in a black canvas bag.

Both suspects fled the business in an unknown direction.

The suspects are believed to be between 20 and 30 years old. One of the men is approximately 5'1", and weighs around 120 pounds. The second man is believed to be about 6 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds.

Anyone with any information is asked to call 480-948-6377 or 1-800-343-TIPS. You can also leave an anonymous tip at Silentwitness.org.
