BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- A jewelry store in Beverly Hills was hit by smash-and-grab robbers Tuesday who remain at large, according to police.
It happened at the Luxury Jewels of Beverly Hills on the corner of South Beverly Drive and Charleville Boulevard just before 2 p.m.
According to police, a group of about five suspects armed with what appeared to be sledgehammers broke the front window of the store and got away with several items.
The group arrived in a stolen car but left it behind, police say, they then fled in an unknown vehicle.
Police believe the suspects were all men, though the investigation is in its preliminary stages.
Some were seen wearing hooded sweatshirts, sweatpants and "surgical-style masks," according to police.
AIR7HD video showed the store's front window smashed as glass covered the sidewalk.
The jewelry store owners told Eyewitness News that the robbers got away with between $3 to $5 million dollars worth of jewelry. They said one necklace alone was worth nearly $500,000.
A next-door business neighbor heard the commotion and ran out to try to stop the suspects, but all of them managed to get away.
