It was an unlucky Thursday the 13th for a jewelry store on South Woodland Boulevard in DeLand.
A man described as “white or Hispanic” robbed Sanders Jewelry Co. in the 1400 block of South Woodland Boulevard, DeLand police spokesman Sgt. Chris Estes said.
According to police, the robber walked into the store shortly after 3 p.m., pointed a handgun at an employee and demanded cash or jewelry. The robber made off with an “undetermined amount” of jewelry, then got into a silver car and fled the scene, Estes said.
“He was described as clean-cut and well-dressed, but there wasn’t any clothing description,” Estes said.
No one was hurt during the heist, he added.
