DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas — Authorities in Hays County are searching for two men they say robbed a jewelry store at gunpoint in Dripping Springs on Saturday morning.

Hays County Sheriff Gary Cutler said in the release that his office reportedly got a call of an aggravated robbery at Vik’s Jewelers on 598 E. U.S. 290 around 11:30 a.m.

The sheriff said the two men entered the store, brandished handguns and ordered store employees to raise their hands.

One suspect allegedly tried to break out the glass in a counter display case, but was unsuccessful. The other suspect then shot two rounds into the display case.

After grabbing an unspecified amount of jewelry, the two fled the store in a dark green, or gray Nissan passenger car, according to the release.

There were two employees in the store at the time of the robbery but the employees were not injured. Video surveillance at the store reportedly captured images of the two suspects being sought.

Deputies say they are looking for two black males in connection with the robbery.  One suspect is described as about 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 175 pounds wearing light-colored jeans, black sweatshirt, tan baseball cap and sunglasses.

The other suspect was about 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 150 pounds with facial hair, blue jeans, a black jacket with a wide white stripe on the sleeves, a camouflage-style boonie hat and a construction worker-style reflective vest, the release states.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact the Hays County Sheriff’s Office at 512-393-7896 and speak with the Criminal Investigations Division, or Hays County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-324-TIPS (8477).
