    Police are searching for the who robbed a jewelry store in midtown Manhattan Friday, tying up a worker before fleeing with $54,000 worth of jewelry, police say.

    The man walked into Margo Manhattan jewelry store at 1202 Madison Ave. just before 2 p.m. and asked to see some pieces, according to police.
