JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for another suspect involved in a jewelry store robbery in June.

Detective Lane Holmes with Jonesboro police said the department is looking to arrest Antonio M. Wilson, 30, of Jonesboro on charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property valued in excess of $25,000.

Officers found cause earlier this week to issue the warrant on Tuesday, a JPD news release stated.

Wilson is one of two suspects accused of robbing Diamond Gems on Red Wolf Blvd. on the morning of June 29.

One of the men, according to police, pointed a handgun at an employee and forced him to empty out a safe into a trash bag. The men then bound the clerk's hands after the robbery to prevent the employee from calling for help.

One suspect, Kerry Kindred, 43, of Jonesboro, was arrested on Aug. 6. Kindred is in the Craighead County Jail in lieu of $1 million bond.

Police released a photo of Wilson, but say the man now has very short hair.

Anyone knowing Wilson's whereabouts may contact the Jonesboro Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (870) 935-6710 or Jonesboro Crime Stoppers at 935-STOP (7867.)
