BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - The Boca Raton Saks Fifth Avenue at Town Center Mall is robbed of its jewelry, and police are still searching for the suspects.
But it's not just the robbery that's raising eyebrows, it's how they did it. Sledgehammers were the weapon of choice in this theft.
Security is now heightened in response to the robbery store clerks and shoppers will never forget. "I parked here at the Saks and had to come out here last, that's why I parked here," said Dawn Gaynor. "The doors were shut at Saks. The guy who worked at the mall said the doors were closed because there was an armed robbery."
Police say it all began an hour before the Saks Fifth Avenue closed. They say five masked men approached the glass counters of the jewelry cases, armed with sledgehammers, and began smashing.
Moments later, investigators say, the robbers left speeding off in a BMW. Squad cars and mall security spent the day patrolling the outside of the store.
We reached out to Saks Fifth Avenue and a spokesperson sent us this statement: "The safety of our associates and customers is of utmost importance to Saks. We are cooperating with authorities on the matter."
We also reached out to the mall and got this e-mailed statement: "Our primary concern is always for the safety of our customers and mall employees, and we are glad no one was injured last [Thursday] night. We will continue to work with the Boca Raton Police Department as they investigate this isolated incident."
We went inside the store just a little while ago without our cameras. The glass jewelry case has since been replaced, and we did noticed an armed guard possibly a police officer inside watching everyone.
Our requests to the Boca Raton Police Department for the surveillance footage were denied.
