Burglars stole millions in jewelry from a store in Roswell, GA, in a brazen overnight burglary.

The thieves hit Jason Guven Fine Jewelry, spending eight hours in the store and taking almost all of its merchandise, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The thieves cut power to the alarm system and rappelled from the roof, police said. They remain at-large.

The store owner was quoted staying that when he arrived the next morning, “We saw the displays on the floor, there was a hole in the vault. We were in shock.”

Sean Thompson, spokesman for the Roswell police department, was quoted saying the burglars appeared to be a “professional crew.”

“They cut through cinder block and rebar and crawled into the safe, where they stole an unknown amount of jewelry,” Thompson said.

The store’s surveillance cameras captured images of two of the suspects, but authorities have not yet identified them, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
