NEW YORK – Brazen smash-and-grab thieves managed to steal more than $2 million of jewelry from a Bronx store.
The NYPD says an employee at Rocco’s Jewelry in the Fordham Heights section buzzed one of the suspects inside the store. That person then held the door for another three robbers.
Once inside, three of the robbers used a hammer to smash open the display cases and steal a large amount of high-end diamond jewelry as the fourth served as a lookout at the front door.
They threw the jewelry into bags they had carried into the store. They then all ran from the store heading south on Webster Avenue. No one was hurt in the incident.
