Screen grab shows jewel thieves breaking an entry and trying to disable surveillance NYPD

Police released footage Monday of thieves who they say made off with $6 million worth of jewelry on New Year’s Eve.

A clear black and white video shows two men breaking into the KGK Holdings jewelry wholesaler at 70 West 36th Street using a hammer and a pry-bar as light snow appears to fall around them at around 10 p.m.

The men look straight into the camera several times before trying to whack it.

Police said the thieves stole jewelry valued at $6 million from two safes, and then fled from the sixth floor of the building using the stairwell.


The suspects have not been apprehended.
