SUNNYVALE, CA – Silicon Valley authorities held a meeting with members and leaders of the Indian American community on June 14 following a series of thefts targeting Indian PNG Jewellers stores, assuring tough action against the criminals.

The meeting happened in the immediate wake of the brazen robbery at PNG Jewellers here on June 13. The Sunnyvale Police Department, in cooperation with regional authorities, has arrested five individuals. The criminal investigation is ongoing, and further arrests are expected.

Sunnyvale City Mayor Larry Klein met with affected jewelry businesses alongside key city officials, including Deputy Mayor Murali Srinivasan, Police Chief Phan Ngo, Acting City Manager Tim Kirby, and the AIA leadership team.

Police Chief Phan Ngo shared crucial safety and prevention measures with business owners to help prevent future incidents. He also assured the community that the toughest actions would be taken against criminals and that police patrols would be increased to enhance security.

“A string of armed robberies affecting Indian jewelry businesses from Newark to Sunnyvale has led to millions of dollars in losses and widespread panic among business owners and the local community,” Ajay Bhutoria a leading California resident who was present at the meeting, said.  “Our businesses now feel a sense of relief knowing that effective measures are being taken to protect them,” he added.
