Customers at a Pembroke Park pawnshop suddenly found themselves on the ground before a gun-swinging robber and his frenetic partner recently.

The robber with the swinging gun arm was part of a pair who hit Peoples Pawn & Jewelry, 2910 SW 30th Ave., the afternoon of March 29. While one robber in a gray hoodie held everyone in place with his pointed gun, a second robber in a navy blue hoodie smashed display cases and gathered loot at a maniacal pace. When Blue Hoodie dropped some jewelry, Gray Hoodie tried to pick it up while keeping up his gun.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said the two escaped in a dark, newer model four-door Lincoln with a smashed rear windshield. Blue Hoodie is described as five-foot-seven. BSO released a police sketch from witnesses of six-foot-two Gray Hoodie.

Anyone with information should contact BSO Det. Mark Copley at 954-321-4738; Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477); or the Broward Crime Stoppers’ website.
