Thieves get $300,000 in jewels

        SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP — A jewelry salesman from Alhambra, Calif., was robbed of about $300,000 worth of jewelry Tuesday, Hamilton County sheriff's deputies said.

        Alex Pang of Pang Brothers Wholesale Jewelry Co. stopped at an Arby's restaurant on Montgomery Road in Sycamore Township at about 11 a.m.

        While he was in the restaurant, two male suspects broke the driver's side window of Mr. Pang's vehicle and gained access to the trunk.

        The thieves removed a black duffel bag from the trunk that contained the jewelry, police said.

        The two were last seen driving away in a red Ford sport utility vehicle.

        The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
