(KSL News) A jewelry broker is robbed at gunpoint by four men.

The broker was leaving a restaurant in Taylorsville late last night when the men approached him. They pulled out a shotgun and demanded his merchandise, so he gave it to them.

Police say the robbers got away with a substantial amount of diamonds.

This is the second time such a heist has happened in a month.

On March 12, a jewelry broker in Orem was ambushed by a group of men. Police believe the thieves watch jewelry stores, then rob the brokers when they are out in the open.
