Los Altos police are seeking the public's help in finding suspects who smashed through the front of a downtown store with a stolen vehicle and grabbed several pieces of jewelry before fleeing in a different get-away vehicle.
Police say the suspects arrived at Marcel Jewelry on the 200 block of Main Street in Los Altos around 2:47 a.m. in a stolen Chevrolet truck on Monday, Dec. 2, and drove through the front door of the business.
The brazen burglary, which was recorded on a surveillance camera and posted on the city's website Wednesday, shows two people with their faces concealed climbing into the store, smashing glass jewelry displays with a hammer and grabbing numerous items. Police are not disclosing the amount of jewelry stolen, according to a statement released Wednesday.
The suspects abandoned the truck and left the area in a white BMW sedan, police said. The collision caused major structural damage to the business.
Anyone with information on the incident or the identity of the suspects is asked to call the Los Altos Police Department's detective bureau at 650-947-2770. Anonymous tips can be given at 650-947-2774.
