A man placed a fake bomb outside a jewelry store in Maryland, along with a note demanding jewelry and cash.
It happened at Sergio’s Fine Jewelers in Ellicott City. Authorities recently released surveillance video of the incident. See a news video from WJZ-TV below.
The state fire marshal’s bomb squad determined that the object was not a real bomb.
According to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance: “While the suspect didn’t proceed further with the crime, and no loss occurred, the area had to be closed down by the bomb squad for the afternoon while investigating the package.”
The Howard County Police Department is offering a $1,500 reward for information that leads to identifying the suspect.
