MIAMI - Three men were captured on surveillance video burglarizing a home in Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood, and the homeowners are offering a hefty reward for information that leads authorities to the culprits.

According to private investigator David Bolton, who is working with local authorities to find the stolen items as well as the burglars, the thieves broke into the home around 9 p.m. July 27.

The homeowners, who have been together for 30 years, told Local 10 News reporter Liane Morejon that they were out of town when the burglary occurred. 

Bolton said in a news release that the thieves cut through a chain-link fence and scaled a 7-foot concrete wall to enter the property before using specialized equipment to remove two safes that were bolted to the floor.

The safes, which were located in the homeowners' closets, reportedly contained more than $1.2 million in valuables, including multiple pieces of jewelry. 

The victims said each safe weighed about 150 pounds.
