Fishers police were searching for two armed men wanted in a jewelry store heist Monday morning.
The Jewelry Gallery at 116th Street and Allisonville Road was held up about 10:30 a.m.
The two employees who were working at the time told police that two men came in, tied them up and held them at gunpoint as they robbed the store.
Owner Jason Hunt said the heist was caught on the stores surveillance camera, RTV6s Chance Walser reported.
"When he first pulled the gun out I was just froze. I was stunned. I was like, Is this really happening?" Hunt said. "He pulled out an all stainless (steel) .45, a large gun and he just told us to get down on the ground. So, we got down on the ground and he had us crawl to the back room. He zip-tied our wrists and I could hear them going through everything. He was asking me where my video tape was.
The employees were not injured.
One of the robbers was described as black, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 200 to 275 pounds wearing a button down mechanic-style shirt with a Lincoln Technical College logo, dark pants, black shoes and a green drawstring-style backpack.
The second man was described as black, 20 to 25 years old, 6 feet tall, 150 pounds , wearing a blue button down mechanic-style shirt with a Lincoln Technical College logo, gray pants and a ball cap.
Employees told police the men were last seen driving away in a vehicle. A short time later, responding officers said that vehicle was spotted near 106th Street and Allisonville Road.
The man driving the vehicle was detained and taken to the Fishers Police Department for questioning, police said.
Carmel, Hamilton County, Noblesville and Indianapolis law enforcement agencies were called to assist Fishers police in the search for the other persons of interest involved in the heist.
Police asked anyone with information regarding the armed robbery to contact Det. Doug Baker at 317-595-3300.
