Jewelry store robbed in Carmel-By-The-Sea, one suspect was a minor, DA says

CARMEL Calif. (KION-TV) UPDATE Jan. 5, 2022 4:25 p.m.

The Monterey County District Attorney said a minor committed three counts of robbery against Fourtané Jewelers in Carmel-by-the-Sea last month.

On Dec. 7, 2021, four suspects robbed Fourtané Jewelers. Of the three suspects that entered the jewelry store, two were carrying sledgehammers, according to the DA.

Three employees were in the store when the suspects came in. One employee ran out of the building while the other two hid inside a room and triggered the alarm. The DA said that the three counts of robbery were for each Fourtané employee that was present during the attack.

Around half an hour after the suspects left the store, California Highway Patrol pulled over a car that patched the description Carmel Police officers gave, according to the DA. Everyone in the car was arrested including the minor.

According to the DA, robbery is considered a violent felony. It's a “strike offense” and because of the age of the miner, the robberies committed against the three employees will count as a strike on his criminal record.
