Subjects ram SUV into jewelry store during heist, video shows

LOS ANGELES, CA – On November 18, 2023, a jewelry store was left picking up the pieces after a brazen vehicle smash burglary impacted their store. The incident was caught on video.

Los Angeles police say officers responded to the jewelry store after a report came in around 1:48 a.m. Saturday.

Multiple security cameras at the jewelry store show an SUV ram into the storefront. The burglars are then seen running in and ransacking the location.

The owner, who didn’t want be identified, says the thieves didn’t take much but they caused significant damage. “We have to redo the floors, redo the cabinets because they were smashed for no reason. There was nothing in them,” the owner said. “They just don’t care, so it impacts us both financially and mentally.”

The owner says the jewelry store has been in the community for more than three decades.

Police had no leads on the case, but the owner said the SUV involved in the crash was stolen and was found abandoned nearby.
