It got pretty brazen at a Galleria jewelry store before the holidays.
Authorities have released a video of a smash-and-grab that is just that: Robbers entering the Ben Bridge store at the posh mall about 9 p.m. December 22, bringing down Thor's hammer on the jewelry cases, and running off...to Abercrombie & Fitch? Who knows?
Actually, they ran outside to a waiting car.
"After clearing the display case of its contents, the suspects fled the scene on foot," Crime Stoppers and HPD says. "Investigators believe the suspects exited through a nearby door, and fled in a vehicle waiting outside. The suspects completed the burglary in less than a minute and reportedly got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including a number of rare Rolex watches."
