A jeweler in Sandy Springs, GA, fought off robbers by using pickle jars, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The owner and witnesses managed to subdue two suspects, holiding them until police arrived on the scene. The robbery happened late Saturday afternoon at a store on Abernathy Road close to Roswell Road, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Police said three people have been arrested: 40-year-old Antonio Collier, 17-year-old Antwan DeKarlos Robinson a 16-year-old suspect. They’re charged with several crimes, including armed robbery as well as battery.

A fourth suspect is being sought.

A witness said that when the robbers entered the store, “they had hammers and were breaking everything and grabbed Rolexes.”

The owner reportedly struck the suspects with a bag of pickle jars, hitting them in the face and head.

Two of the suspects got away, resulting in a police chase and car crash, authorities said. One of the suspects in the car was arrested and the other ran away.
