One such case occurred late afternoon Tuesday the 13th of March, 2012. It is alleged that there were two men wearing dark clothing and masks on their faces to hide their identity as they proceeded to steal from a jewelry store in Highland, Utah. The store was still full of guests when the men came in. The assailants instructed everyone to get on the floor. In that process two women were injured. One was a woman in her early 80’s that suffered damage to her hip when she attempted to get on the ground. The second was a woman in her late 80’s that received some wounds on her face and hands (Brubaker 4 & 5). It has not been specified how she received these wounds. She will likely need the assistance of an attorney in Utah to help her to get medical care paid for.
The store was torn apart and glass was broken along with vast amounts of jewelry taken. The witnesses were able to give a brief description of the men as well as some of the license plate numbers associated with the getaway vehicles. There will be no information given out on how much was stolen, but you can be sure that everyone involved will be discussing that information like the following with their attorney in Utah if the suspects are caught and have the means to pay for the damages:
“Suspects are described as a 6 foot 2 inch, 280-pound African-American male wearing brown sweats and a black ski mask, and a 5 foot 4 inch, 145-pound male of unknown race wearing a dark shirt and jeans and a black ski mask (Brubaker 8).”
