Police are looking for four men who brazenly walked into a Webster Avenue jewelry store and used a hammer to smash at least one display case, before fleeing on foot down a busy Webster Avenue with over $2 million in gems.
Officers from the 46th Precinct were called to Rocco’s Jewelry, located at 2521 Webster Avenue just south of the northern Fordham Heights border at 2:38 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5.
According to a police source, “An unknown individual approached the front door and was buzzed inside of the store by an employee. The individual then held the door open for an additional three individuals.
Once inside the store, the three individuals used a hammer to smash open the display case and removed a large amount of high-end diamond jewelry.”
