Police are in search two men who stole $300,000 in diamonds and valuables from a Morris Park jewelry store on Tuesday, December 22 at 12:14 p.m.

The crook and a partner entered Premier Jewelers at 1042 Morris Park Avenue in midday. One had a hardhat and hospital mask, the other a black handgun. They used zip ties to restrain the store’s owner in his basement and plundered a display of diamond engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings and necklaces, then fled.

The storeowner guessed that the men were Hispanic or Eastern European but had no accents.

Phone the 49th Precinct Detective Squad at (718) 918-2034, Case #711, to share any information, which will be kept confidential.
