In another of a series of smash-and-grab jewelry store robberies, two men stormed into an Anaheim store this morning, shattered a display case with hammers and fled with an unknown amount of jewelry.
The episode unfolded shortly after 11 a.m. when three men in their 20s entered Kay Jewelers in Anaheim Plaza, 500 N. Euclid, and broke into the display case, police said. Witnesses saw the three fleeing with two other men in a car, which officers later discovered abandoned a few blocks away, Lt. John Haradon said. Police were checking for fingerprints in the car, which they believe may have been stolen.
The heist was among more than a dozen such robberies in Orange County in recent months.
