NATIONAL CITY, Calif. -- Police are searching for four thieves who robbed a National City jewelry at gunpoint Tuesday night.

Around 5:30 p.m., four masked men entered the Guevara Jewelry and Watch Repair Shop on Highland Avenue, near Sweetwater High School. One man armed with a handgun was "ordering customers around" while at least one other man used a hammer to smash display cases, according to police.

The thieves were seen leaving in a dark-colored car.

No injuries were reported.

Last month, National City police said at least four thieves robbed a Jared's Jewelers in the 2900 block of Plaza Bonita Road, but detectives have not said whether the two thefts were connected.
