Watch swarm of robbers invade flea market jewelry stand
A gang of five pulled off a retail smash-and-grab at The Village Flea Market and got away with $750,000 in jewelry, police say.
But they did leave two faces behind on surveillance video.
The video, released Monday by Miami-Dade police, shows several robbers climbing over the counters at P&S Jewelry around 5 p.m. last Tuesday. Overwhelmed by numbers and surprise, the plucky staff couldn’t prevent the criminals from smashing into some of the display cases and making off with jewelry.
Police say the group left the flea market at 7900 NW 27th Ave. in a white Ford Crown Victoria.
Video stills show two robbers before they jump the rear counter. One wore ripped blue jeans, a black hoodie declaring “Just Do It,” and a hat in Florida State’s garnet and gold colors, but with a Chicago Bulls-like bull in gold. The second wore beige khakis, a gray stocking hat, and a black Adidas jacket with white stripes down the arms.
