Jewelry store robbers caught on surveillance at second store, police say

About $250,000 worth of jewelry stolen from Burt's Jewelers


MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Surveillance video shows three men who are believed to have robbed a jewelry store last month in Miami-Dade County.

Police said video from a store at 1205 NE 163rd St. shows three men walking around the shop while making hand and head signals at each other before they left without purchasing anything.

Police believe the men are the same people who robbed Burt's Jewelers, at 1676 Miami Gardens Drive, two days later.

According to detectives, the men came into the store posing as customers. Police said two of the men pulled out guns, sprayed employees with pepper spray and tied them up.

Police said the owners opened the safe for the thieves and unlocked some of the cases that had jewelry inside.

The thieves left with $1,500 in cash and several pieces of jewelry valued at about $250,000.

Police said the men seen in both surveillance videos were dressed similarly. Two of the men are described as black and between the ages of 20 and 25, while one is estimated to be between 25 to 35 years old.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
