San Juan police are looking for two suspects who robbed a pawn shop at gunpoint over the weekend.
Surveillance video showed the two suspects entering and leaving the Cash American Pawn Shop on North Raul Longoria Road.
Police released a 911 call that was staged by a female caller to divert police to a fake auto accident.
The caller said a car crash had occured just blocks away from where the robbery took place, according to police.
While police were responding to the call, other officers arrived to the pawn shop.
Police said the men entered the store wearing panty hose and sunglasses covering their faces.
They ordered all of the customers to leave and robbed employees at gun point.
Police are not releasing the amount of money and jewelry the suspects took at this time.
One of the suspects has a deformity on his right lower ear lobe and the other was last seen wearing a blue cap, camouflage jacket and blue jeans.
A reward of $10,000 has been set by San Juan Crime Stoppers.
Anyone with information on the 911 call or the robbery can call 283-TIPS.
