Cobb Police are searching for a suspect following Thursday's incident at Edward-Johns Jewelers on Johnson Ferry Road.
An East Cobb jewelry store was robbed on Thursday afternoon, and Cobb Police are searching for the suspect.
According to Cobb Police Spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce, a man walked into the Edward-Johns Jewelers, 1205 Johnson Ferry Road in the Woodlawn Square Shopping Center, around 3 p.m. and asked an employee to see a specific piece of jewelry.
