Masked robbers steal jewelry, valuables from Lauderdale Lakes pawn shop

The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating a robbery that was reported Tuesday in Lauderdale Lakes.

The robbery was reported shortly before 11:30 a.m. at a Value Pawn at 2950 State Road 7.

Authorities told Local 10 News reporter Derek Shore that armed men, who were wearing masks, smashed glass display cases and ran out of the store with jewelry and other valuables.

It's unclear whether the robbery is related to a similar incident that was reported last month at Peoples Pawn & Jewelry, on Southwest 30th Avenue near Hallandale Beach Boulevard in Pembroke Park.

BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said one of two men pulled out a gun during the March 29 robbery and ordered the staff to get on the floor while the second man shattered the glass display cases and threw jewelry into a plastic bin.

Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to call the BSO at 954-321-4738 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
