Fontana police are looking for three men who smashed a glass display case at a Cardenas supermarket and made off with an unspecified amount of jewelry.

The robbery happened around 2:12 p.m. at 11647 Cherry Ave. on Thursday, May 16, said Officer Steven Reed, a Police Department spokesman.

The men pulled up in a white Ford Mustang with a black convertible top and got out wearing hooded sweatshirts, backpacks and medical-style masks, Reed said. They used a hammer to break the glass at a kiosk and then grabbed handfuls of jewelry.

They drove away north on Cherry toward Jurupa Avenue, Reed said.

No arrests have been announced.

Other Cardenas markets have been similarly hit.
