The three suspects were caught on surveillance video smashing their way into the store by breaking through the glass door with a large object. One of the suspects then wedged a shopping cart in the motion-activated sliding doors, so the crooks wouldn’t get stuck inside.
The suspects then went running toward the jewelry section with a large brown bag. Police say all three suspects were observed breaking the glass to the jewelry display cases and exiting the store with an undetermined amount of jewelry.READ MORE: Michigan Humane Rescues Kitten From Drain Pipe In Detroit
