POWELL (Lu Ann Stoia/Ken Hines) -- Police are asking for the public's help to catch at least four thieves suspected of working together to rob an antique store.
The team of thieves stole approximately $9000 worth of jewelry and silver from the Liberty Antique Mall on May 25 at approximately 3:30 p.m.
Store surveillance cameras caught the thieves in action, according to police, who hope the security video's circulation will prevent the team from robbing additional area businesses.
In the video, a woman is seen distracting a clerk at the store's register while a man keeps another employee busy by asking for an item from the display case. Neither employee noticed a male suspect emerge from a back room, carrying a bag of stolen goods.
A fourth suspect appears to have provided cover for the man carrying the stolen items as he left the store unnoticed.
Anyone with information about the robbery/suspects is encouraged to call Powell police at 614-885-3374.
