Was it a set up?

After getting James’ jewelry, the two thieves fled to a nearby car. But when James ran to his own car to chase after them (likely not the smartest idea), three of the tires on his car had been slashed, which leads us to believe the robbery was a set-up.

Police are still searching for the suspects.
