Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Authorities are searching for three suspects accused of a robbing an Atlanta jewelry store.

According to police, the masked suspects went into Elif Fine Jewelry on Paces Ferry Place around 10 a.m. on Nov. 7 and forced store owner Dursune Aydin and an employee to the ground at gunpoint.  

"All I saw was a black mask and a gun pointing at me. He said, 'Don't move,'" said Aydin.

The suspects then used a hammer to break the glass of five display cases and took rings, watches and other jewelry.

"They knew exactly where to go -- the fancy jewelry. We have diamond rings, colored stones, yellow gold jewelry," said Dursune Aydin.

The suspects were in and out of the store in under four minutes, Aydin said.

The men fled the scene in a dark gray GMC SUV with a Florida license plate headed towards West Paces Ferry.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 404-577-8477.
