5 I $5,000 GEMS LOOT OF 1 ST AVE. T HUGS HOLD UP PAWNSHOP Leave Bag With Si 0,000 in Jewels on Counter in Their Haste to Flee. four mlddlo-nped men, each armed with two revolvers, held up the rmn ncer and two clerks of Edctntetn Bros.' pawnshop at No. 252 First Avenue at S.30 o'clock this morning and escaped with diamonds and matches valued at, approximately, $5,000. Tho loss may bo much heavier when the missing goods are Checked up And inventoried. In their haste to set away the thugs left a bag containing $10,000 In jewels on tho counter. The pawnshop Is on the corner of East 15th Street. Alexander Mayer, the manager, opened up at 8 o'clock and the clerks, Abraham and Louis BehwarU, appeared a few minutes later. Tho big safe was opened and Mayer busied himself getting the books in order, whllo the clerks ar ranged the display In tho front win dow. The four thugs entered with a rush, drawing their revolvers as they passed through the door. An ar rangement of screens In tho window and Just outside the door, usual In pawnshops to Insure privacy to cus tomers, was also a comparative In surance of privacy to tho thugs. In obedience to orders, Mayer and the Schwartzes elevated their hands. Thereupon two of the thieves pock eted their revolvers and Jumped over tho counter. Ono of them produced a rope and was about to bind Mayei when tho leader of the expedition told him not to waste any tlmo with the rope. While two of tho thugs kept the pawnshop men covered the two be hind the counter swept tho contents of two trays in the big safe Into a suit case which they had taken from a shelf. At this point a man opened tho door, saw the thieves with pointed revolvers, yelled and fled down First Avenue. This forced the thieves to wind up their operations with only two trays of the safe stripped. They ran out of the store, entered an automobile standing at the curb Just around tho corner and disappeared to the west ward in 15th Street.
