LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- An EZ PAWN store on East Desert Inn was robbed Saturday morning by a man wielding a crowbar.

Metro police reported a black man threatened employees with a crowbar at EZ PAWN, 3050 E. Desert Inn, at about 10:45 a.m. before escaping with an unknown amount of money and/or merchandise.

"He was seen heading northbound on McLeod in a white car," Metro Lt. Mike Wallace told News 3.

According to assistant store manager Fred Skinner, thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was stolen from the suspect who jumped over a jewelry case and used a crowbar to break it open.

Nobody was injured.

Skinner said the store was robbed a year ago and jewelry was also taken.
