Footage Shows Thieves Cleaning Out $3 Million In Jewelry

March 04, 2011  | 


The Los Angeles Police Department has released surveillance video from a downtown jewelry heist that resulted in the theft of $3 million in merchandise during a methodically planned robbery, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Thieves who tunneled into the Broadway Gold Center on Feb. 19 can be seen cleaning out rings and other jewelry from cases in the store in the footage.
