Men sought in Stuyvesant Plaza robbery

GUILDERLAND - Kimberly Adams said she's concerned and proud of three employees who kept their cool during an armed robbery.

"I think they're shaken up I think they're a little scared today in the after fact," she said.

Surveillance video taken by the store's many cameras, showed three men wearing ball caps entering Frank Adams Jewelers Thursday around 8 o'clock.

Adams said the robbers put a gun to the ribs of two employees, walked them down a hall and tied them up, then came out to the showroom, and smashed a case filled with Rolex watches.

Police said the suspects grabbed a number of expensive watches, stuffing them into a gym back before taking off; never trying to cover their faces, in front of cameras or witnesses.

"It's in a mall area where there were other people present and there were witnesses to this event. In addition, they had no masks on to disguise their identity," said Captain Curtis Cox of the Guilderland Police.

During the heist, police said another employee hid in a locked bathroom, calling 911 with her cell phone.

"She was very level-headed, very calm, about how she performed. And the smartest thing she did was wait until they were gone to call for help," Adams said.

While Adams predicted the watches were quickly sold on the black market, she hopes time will run out for the suspects, as soon as someone comes forward with information.

"Very brazen. Somebody wants what they want," she said of the robbers. "So I don't think having their image on camera was a concern that they had. "

Police described the suspects as follows:

#1 - Black Male - Mid 20's - Royal Blue "Yankees" baseball cap with a sticker on the brim - Royal Blue Jacket - Medium color blue jeans - Dark Shoes. Displayed a black pistol during the robbery.

#2 - White Male - 6'3" - Mid 20's - Scruffy Beard - Gray hooded sweat shirt - light colored jeans - Light colored shirt under the sweat shirt - light blue flat brim baseball hat with sticker on the brim.

#3 - Black Male - Heavy Set - Medium Height - Dark Mustache - Patch of hair under his chin - White baseball cap - Blue long sleeve collar type shirt - Light colored jeans cuffed at the bottom - blue gloves - black shoes - carrying a gray gym bag with black straps.
