Calgary police on the lookout for suspects after armed robbery at jewelry store

Calgary police said just before noon Monday, they received calls about an armed robbery in Northland Village at Tany’s Jewellery, adding that a smoke bomb was used.

Witnesses told Global News two suspects also used a fire extinguisher to create a cloud around the store.

“We heard a lot of a banging and crashing going,” said witness Patti Lambert.

“I bet eight minutes later, they ran out with two bags, carrying stuff… One had a gun.”

EMS said no one was injured.
