Smash and grab duo hit jewelry store; caught on camera
HAMMOND - Police are looking for a pair of thieves who made off with bags of stolen loot from a jewelry store on Southwest Railroad Avenue, between I-55 and downtown.
Security video from the store shows the crooks breaking through the front, glass door and crawling in. The video shows them running through the store, stuffing bags full of jewelry and leaving. A few minutes later, the police arrive.
The police department said in a Facebook post Thursday, investigators only know the suspects drove off in a black Cadillac Escalade with large chrome rims. They wore covers over their faces inside the store.
