MILWAUKEE -- Two robbers leaving a south side Milwaukee jewelry store with cash and gems didn't get far with the loot.

Police said a group of robbers met the two as they walked out and robbed them.

According to police Lt. Thomas Welch, a fight broke out in the street before the groups got in vehicles and a chase ensued.

Welch said officers pulled over both vehicles and arrested four people, including the original two robbers, ages 40 and 31, and two men from the second group, of ages 22 and 27. All four are from Illinois.

But he said police didn't recover any cash or jewelry and are searching for more suspects in Wednesday's incident.

There's no immediate estimate of the value of the things taken.
