MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Three men are accused of robbing a Cash America Pawn Shop, but the whole incident was caught on security camera. Now, they're all behind bars.

Tuesday just after 12:30 p.m., the men ran into the pawn shop on Lamar Avenue. One held the door while the other two smashed the jewelry counter with hammers. They took more than $14,500 worth of jewelry, put it into a bag, and ran out. They all jumped into a four-door Volvo, which officers later saw at Mississippi Avenue and Trigg Avenue.

John Spraggins, Cario Dotson, and Kevin Horlsey were all taken into custody. Spraggins tried to run, but an officer caught him. The officers found jewelry in the car and on the ground.

All three men face robbery charges.
