FORDHAM, the Bronx (PIX11) — Four robbers stole jewelry worth around $2.15 million from a jewelry store in the Bronx Friday afternoon, police said.
An employee buzzed one of the suspects into the jewelry store along Webster Avenue near East Fordham Road around 2:30 p.m. He held the door open for the three other suspects, video of the incident showed. Once inside the store, one of the men used a hammer to smash the display cases open while the others took pieces of jewelry and placed them inside bags, the video showed.
The suspects fled the scene. Officials said no one was injured during the robbery.
Police asked for help in finding the suspects. The man who let the others inside was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, a white t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers and black sunglasses, while the other three were all wearing all-dark clothes.
