Fairfield Police have released surveillance photos taken when Lenox Jewelery, 2379 Black Rock Tpke., was robbed late Thursday, April 11.

The photos, taken from a distance, show two suspects entering the store.

Anyone who has information on the robbery is asked to comment the Fairfield Police Investigative Bureau at 203-254-4840 or “Text a Tip” from the icon at fpdct.com.

Police said there is no video from inside Lenox Jewelry.

A manager called police at 10:51 p.m. April 11 to report that he and a second employee were kidnapped and the store was robbed.

Police said the two employees were taken at gunpoint from an apartment in Meriden.

As these two victims were being held, two acquaintances arrived at their apartment and were held by two additional suspects.

The manager and employee were placed into the manager’s vehicle, a 2009 silver BMW with Massachusetts plates, and were driven from Meriden to Fairfield by way of Route 15, exiting at the Black Rock Turnpike Exit 44.

The victims opened the store, allowing the suspects entry, and it is believed that in excess of $4 million in jewelry was taken from the store safe. The robbery was conducted in five minutes from the time of entry into the store to the suspects exit.

The two victims report being restrained in the back of the store while the robbers left in their vehicle. Shortly after hearing the suspects leave, they were able to free themselves and call 911.

Meriden Police were contacted and it was learned that the two people held in the apartment in Meriden during this robbery were released one minute after the two suspects left the Fairfield Lenox store. It is believed that all four suspects were communicating and coordinating their efforts with each other during the entire event.

The car used during the robbery was recovered Friday, April 12, on Mill Plain Road in Fairfield.
