FRANKLIN SQUARE - ? Police are searching for two men who held up a jewelry store in Franklin Square.

Police have released surveillance video that shows one man pulling out a gun and holding it up to the store owner?s head.

Lance Stein owns Stein Family Jewelry and says one man walked in pretending to buy an engagement ring on Sunday. The second man came in and took out the hangun, dragged Stein to the back of the store and tied him up. According to Stein, the men wanted to know where the camera recorder was and asked if it was working. Police say the camera caught a good look at the men. Stein?s son-in-law walked through the front door and scared the men off before they could get any money or jewelry.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the men to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
