Police in The Woodlands are looking for the group that robbed a jewelry store.

Around 7:30pm Monday, five men wearing white HazMat suits and painter masks stole jewelry from the Jared Galleria of Jewelry store in the 1400 block of Lake Woodlands Drive. At least one of the suspects had a handgun.

The suspects smashed glass display cases, stealing the jewelry inside. They spent only one to two minutes in the store before fleeing, authorities said.

The men arrived in a white Crown Victoria, but abandoned it in front of the store and made their getaway in a white SUV parked at a nearby gas station.

There were about 10 employees and customers in the store at the time. No one was injured. Only vague descriptions of the suspects are available.
