Smash-and-grab robbers in New York City stole a large amount of high-end jewelry in a heist that was caught on video.
The robbery happened at Rocco’s Jewelry in the Bronx on Friday at around 2:30 p.m. The business estimates that they lost $2.15 million worth of merchandise in the heist.
The jeweler, which is in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx and a short walk away from Fordham University, was closed on Saturday while police investigated the scene.
Surveillance video shows one of the suspects acting coolly as he approaches the store and waits to be let in.
After a Rocco’s Jewelry employee buzzed him in, the white T-shirt-clad suspect held the door open for three masked men in black clothing.
One of the thieves is seen using a hammer to smash glass cases as the others shove fistfuls of jewelry into bags.
The heist – which lasted only around a minute – appears to have been carefully planned. Police have published images and descriptions of the suspects to gather more information.
