A Coral Gables resident was chased away from his home at gunpoint late Saturday morning, police said, and the robber swiped a bag of jewelry the victim dropped while running.

Coral Gables police said when the resident approached his home in the 4000 block on Ingram Highway just before noon Saturday he noticed a white four-door BMW in his driveway. A man jumped out of the car and aimed a handgun at the victim, who took off running and dropped a bag with an “undisclosed amount” of jewelry.

The armed man, described as thin and young with his dreadlocks in a bun, grabbed the bag and drove off.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Coral Gables police at 305-442-1600 or CrimeStoppers at 305-471-8477.
