At approximately 10:50 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14, four armed suspects entered Roussel's in Gonzales under the ruse of having a medallion worked on by the staff jeweler.

The foursome waited until all customers had left the establishment before drawing pistols and ordering the four employees on duty to get on the ground.

An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen from both the register and the safe, as well as diamond jewelry held within a display cabinet.

The suspects are described as African American, with at least one suspected to be a woman.

They left the scene in an unidentified vehicle, heading in an unknown direction.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the City of Gonzales Police Department at (225) 647-9536, or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP (7867).
