NYC thieves get away with millions worth of jewelry in dramatic smash-n-grab
New York, New York - The NYPD is searching for four unidentified men that staged the dramatic robbery of a jewelry store in broad daylight on Friday, taking off with over $2 million worth of goods.
Surveillance video of the shocking incident, which took place in broad daylight at Rocco's Jewelry in the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx, shows a man in a white shirt, black hat, and sunglasses being let into the store.
He holds the door, waves his hand, and props it open as three other men dressed in black, faces covered with masks, make their way in.
The first man stands watch at the entrance as one of his companions begins smashing glass cases with a hammer, while the other two begin scooping jewelry into bags.
Altogether, the epic heist took only 20 seconds to execute before the thieves reportedly took off on foot, headed southbound on Webster Avenue.
The clip was shared in a tweet from NYPD Crime Stoppers, which also offers a reward of up to $3,500 for information regarding the suspects.
Fortunately, no one was harmed in the incident, but for now, the suspects still remain at large and unidentified.
