TEMPE, Ariz. -

Police are still searching for two men, believed to have robbed a jewelry store in a Tempe mall just after Christmas, but it's what they allegedly stole that police think could help crack the case.

Authorities say a Fred Flintstone pendant was stolen during a robbery at Capri Jewelers inside the Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe back on December 30. According to investigators, the jewel encrusted pendant was valued at a whopping $10,000.

"It is distinctive and unique and it was apparently custom made, so there's only one or two of these out there, so that will be key really to solving this crime," said Silent Witness' Sgt. Darren Burch.

Silent Witness released photos of the two suspects, along with new surveillance video, showing them inside the busy mall. 

The robbery happened around 5 p.m.

"You can see the suspect walking by on his cell phone.  We also believe there's a lookout on his cell phone," said Burch.

Investigators say the suspect asked specifically for the Flintstone pendant and the clerk got it out to show him.

"At this point, he has a gun in his right hand as these people are shopping, he reveals the gun and then grabs the pendant from the clerk's hands," said Burch.

Police haven't been able to identify the suspects, but believe the pendant might be the piece they need to solve the case.

"A key to solving this crime is the pendant.. someone out there probably has this pendant," said Burch.

If you have any information about this case, call Silent Witness.  You can remain anonymous and receive a up to a $1,000 cash award for tips leading to an arrest or indictment.
