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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
