— Raleigh police announced Tuesday a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible for the armed robbery of a Wake County jewelry store.

A reward of up to $18,750 is being offered for the two suspects who on Friday robbed Perry Brothers Jewelers at 4121-105 New Bern Ave.

Police say the suspects entered the store, handcuffed two employees, stole items from display cases and fled the scene on foot.

The two suspects are described as black males of medium skin tone who are in their mid- to late-20s.

Investigators think the suspects may also be responsible for a similar robbery in North Raleigh Friday.
