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.
As the employee opened up the display case, the suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded that the item be given to him, Pierce said.
The suspect fled the scene with the jewelry in a red Honda driven by a black female occupant, according to Pierce, who said the vehicle was headed northbound on Johnson Ferry Road.
He described the suspect as a black male with a thin build, last seen wearing a dark jacket, dark pants and a gray shirt, and armed with a handgun.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Cobb Police at 770-499-3945.
