MILPITAS (KRON) – Police in Milpitas are now trying to determine if the robbery at the Great Mall that led to the mall being locked down Sunday night is related to a similar robbery in Modesto earlier in the day.
The sound of breaking glass at the Valliani Jewelers was originally mistaken for gunfire, prompting a lockdown of the mall.
Police continue to search for three suspects involved in that robbery.
Nearly three hours earlier, the same jewelry store was robbed at a mall in Modesto.
In that case, there were also reports of gunshots, but no gun was fired in that case either.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
