Atlanta Police are on the lookout for 6 brazen thieves who robbed the Mayors Jewelry store in Lenox Square Mall on Friday afternoon in upscale Buckhead.
Police say one man stood lookout while 5 casually dressed men entered the jewelry store on the upper level of Lenox Square Mall. Footage from Mayors security cameras shows the men loitering around the center island where pricey diamonds are on display.
The men then drifted over to the Rolex case at the back of the store. Two of the men produced hammers and smashed the glass cases, grabbing Rolex watches priced upwards of $100,000 a piece. Police estimate the thieves snatched $940,000 worth of Rolex Watches in 30 seconds.
“This was well-coordinated and thought-out,” Sgt. Greg Lyon told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “They had seconds to commit this and get away.”
