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.
Police said the suspects took off in a car, but a short time later, that vehicle was found a few blocks away.
Police said the two men took off in another vehicle: a dark green Land Rover.
Officers set up around the city, watching for the Land Rover, but so far, no one has been taken into custody.
This comes three weeks after a similar robbery at Sunridge Mall where 20 people had to be treated after suspects used tear gas.
