Police release video from Beard's smash-and-grab robbery

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin police have released surveillance footage from the April 17 smash-and-grab robbery at Beard's Fine Jewelers.

The video shows four hooded and masked suspects run into the store and, in just a matter of about two minutes, smash counters and take jewelry out before running off.

Det. JB Smith said the suspects used a silver Dodge pickup that was stolen from Screen Geeks, located at 2950 S. John Redditt Drive, the day before.

The Dodge was later recovered in a nearby parking lot. Police believe the suspects then used a small, newer model, tan or beige SUV as the second getaway vehicle.

Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS.
