Scene of the robbery.


Three men apparently pepper sprayed a customer at the DeVons Jewelers in Stockton before robbing the place.

DeVons clerks say that the men walked in early Monday afternoon and sprayed the customer directly in the face before spraying down the whole store.

The suspects then smashed the display cases and stole some merchandise.

They fled the scene in a newer model black Cadillac, which was found a short time later near Stanton Way less than a mile away.

Deputies say the thieves made off with three Rolex watches and several display rings. A value hasn’t yet been placed on what was stolen.
