The police said:

On 3/16/22 just before 7 p.m., a woman called 911 to report that four men entered a jewelry store near 75th Ave and Bell Rd and robbed nine victims inside the store. She told the 911 operator that the men were armed and holding store workers and customers at gunpoint, including tying some of them up with zip ties. The suspects took both jewelry from the store and personal items from the victims. As the robbery was occurring, officers from Glendale began to arrive at the scene and saw three of the suspects running out the front door while the fourth suspect fled out the back. All four suspects have been taken into safe custody. No victims have reported physical injuries and at present more than $1.5 million has been recovered. Detectives are still inventorying the recovered items and the value continues to climb, likely to over $2 million.

ABC 15 reports that the four suspects — Monta Harris, Deandre Haven, Kenneth Walton, Jr. and Garry Freeny — face charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and robbery. Harris and Freeny also face kidnapping charges and Harris also faces a weapons charge.
