Hamilton police looking for man who allegedly robbed jewelry store

Hamilton police say a man armed with a hammer was able to get away with jewelry from a store inside Jackson Square on Feb 24, 2020.

Hamilton police say they’re looking for a man who allegedly made off with jewelry after a robbery in broad daylight at Jackson Square last Monday.

Investigators say the man — described as slim, between five feet, 10 inches and six feet tall, with blonde hair and a beard — entered Golden Gate Jewellers, threatened an employee with a hammer and demanded jewelry be handed over.

“The hammer was not used … there was a threat made towards the clerk to give him merchandise or he would start smashing all the jewelry cases with the hammer,” Const. Lorraine Edwards told Global News.
