    Police in Chester County are close to announcing reward money, to help them capture four men wanted in a home invasion, kidnapping and jewelry store robbery.

    Investigators say the four masked men, armed with semi-automatic handguns, forced their way into the Tredyffrin Township home of a jewelry store owner last Friday.

    The men tied up the owner and his wife, ransacked the house and then forced the owner into his own car at gunpoint, authorities told NBC10.

    The armed men forced him to drive to his East Norriton jewelry store, Shuler's, where they made him open the safe with precious jewels inside.

    Police say insurance agents are still working on exact figures of how much the jewelry was worth, but estimate it's between $600,000 and $1.2 million dollars.

    The men also stole the owner's car. Tredyffrin Township Police hope this reward will prompt someone to come forward with information.
