It can be seen from the video clip of “Tianyan”: at the time of the crime, two robbers, wearing duck caps and black clothes, took a private car driven by their accomplices to the jewelry store. One of the robbers was holding a hammer, and the other one left the car with a beef knife and nylon bag, and entered the shop to commit a crime. At that time, there were still customers in the store, but they fled immediately after a robbery was found. “East net” reported that the whole process of the crime was about 1 minute and 25 seconds, the bandits smashed the jewelry counter with a hammer and beef knife, snatched four plates of gold, and then boarded the private car to escape.
What’s more, the report also said that a police car passed by the jewelry store one minute before the crime, which did not rule out that the robbers had “trampled on”.
