Police in Whittier are searching for three armed robbery suspects who held up a jewelry store on Monday. Two men and a woman burst into Oasis Jewelry near Whittier Boulevard and Hadley Street at about 11:20 a.m.

Surveillance video shows the suspects placing a six-pack of soda in the door so it wouldn't shut. The suspects then smashed a glass top and emptied display cases and drawers filled with jewelry.

One suspect forced an employee into a backroom. There are no reports of anyone being injured.

The getaway car, which turned out to be stolen, was located a few blocks away.

Anyone with information on the robbery should call the Whittier Police Department at (562) 945-8250.
