Two men robbed Silver and Gold Connections at Annapolis Mall of $4,000 to $5,000 worth of gold necklaces Monday, county police said.

The store manager told police that two men in white dress shirts and ties approached the booth about 9:45 p.m. and asked to see jewelry. The men were on opposite sides of the booth, and as the manager helped one man, the other bent over in front of the display case, police said. The manager told police she thought she heard one of the cabinet doors of the display case open, but she thought nothing of it at the time.

The first man tried on several pieces of jewelry, then told the manager he had to pay a bill in the mall but would return later. The man walked off briskly, police said. His partner had already left.

The manager walked to the display case where the other man had been and discovered an entire display of gold necklaces missing. The cabinet door, which allowed access to the necklaces, was closed but unlocked, police said.

The case had 80 necklaces, all 20 inches long, police said.
