Police say three men entered the store in the 8000 block of Churchill Way at Central Expressway just after 3 p.m. and smashed the glass jewelry counter. One perpetrator used a pickax, and one was carrying a handgun, according to police.

The thieves stole jewelry inside the case and escaped to an awaiting vehicle. No injuries were reported.
