Belfast — Police are investigating a break-in at a Belfast jewelry store that occurred in the early morning hours of Thursday, March 28.
According to a press release from Belfast Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham, the break-in occurred at about 12:05 a.m., at which time three people wearing facial coverings and hoods approached the storefront of Belfast Jewelry in Reny's Plaza.
"The front door was shot with some type of handgun, which shattered the glass. It was then knocked out with a hammer," stated the release. "The three subjects entered the store and proceeded to smash the glass-top display cases."
Cunningham stated in the release that the trio made off with assorted jewelry, which was placed into a bag that was in possession of one of the three involved.
