3 men rob Chinatown/I.D. jewelry trader

Seattle police are searching for three men who robbed a Gold & Silver Traders shop in the 600 block of South Jackson Street around 12:45 p.m. today, said police spokesman Jeff Kappel.

One of the robbers was armed, said Kappel.

In the midst of the robbery, the robbers saw police officers across the street and thought they were responding to the holdup, a witness told police. However, the officers were not aware of what was going on inside the store.

When the officers were no longer in sight, the robbers tied up the owner and took off. The owner then set off the store’s alarm.

Witnesses reported seeing the three men change their clothing in a nearby alley. The robbers were last seen heading north on Sixth Avenue and then running through Hing Hay Park. Officers have recovered the discarded garments, Kappel said.

Gold & Silver Traders is a family-owned business with six locations in the Puget Sound region where customers can sell unwanted jewelry and precious metals, according to its website.
