It was like “Mission: Impossible.”

Thieves wearing night-vision goggles stole $100,000 worth of jewelry from a jewelry store on Staten Island.

The burglars first entered a vacant business next door in order to get into Fortune Jewelers at about 3:50 a.m., the New York Daily News reports.

The criminals were seen on surveillance video “wearing head-to-toe dark clothes, heavy-duty gloves, masks and night goggles,” according to the newspaper.

The owner of the store, who declined to be named publicly, told the Staten Island Advance there were two burglars.

“It was like a job you see in the movies,” he was quoted as saying.

Authorities said the items stolen included gold rosary beads, charm bracelets and cross pendants.

The family has run the jewelry store for three decades, according to the Daily News.

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.”
