Shoppers were sent scampering yesterday when three men staged a brazen robbery at a jewelry store in Trincity Mall just after noon. The Sunday Express was told by police that at about 12.35 p.m., three men were seen running towards Gold Kingdom Jewellery store.

The men were holding hammers and what appeared to be other tools. They smashed one of the glass cases at the front of the store and grabbed a quantity of jewelry, before one of the store attendants threw a chair at them from behind another counter.
