Video shows jewelry thieves drive F-150 into store for $200K heist

- The front entrance of NJ Diamonds remains boarded up after a recent smash and grab.

Dearborn police are still looking for the two suspects involved in the incident, which took place at the Ford Road and Schaefer business.

They suspects escaped with an estimated $200,000 worth of jewelry - all within three minutes.

Surveillance video has been released showing the break-in from 4:44 a.m. Wednesday when the men used a stolen Ford F-150 pickup truck to smash into the store front.

One man ran inside, the other parked the F-150 stolen out of Southgate then pulled up in a motorcycle and stood lookout.

"He had a hoodie on his head," said Zouher Abdel-Hak, the owner. "He (had) gloves, he put a bag attached to his neck to put whatever he wanted in it.

"They went after 21 karat gold because in my opinion they know the place, they cased the place and they went for something they can melt down or sell without losing a big percentage of money."

Although there are not good descriptions of the two men, they fled eastbound on Ford Road riding a motorcycle, leaving the stolen F-150.

If you have any information on the incident, contact Dearborn police at (313) 943-2241.
