Video shows thieves breaking into Perth Amboy jewelry store

Surveillance video shows two thieves robbing a Perth Amboy jewelry store early Saturday morning.



At least two men are seen in the video, breaking in to Ruby's Jeweler around 4 a.m.



The suspects did so by first breaking into the electric box that controls the metal gate. They then unscrewed the box, cut the wires and opened it.



From there, the thieves are then seen breaking through a glass door with a brick and running around the store.



One suspect is seen wearing a knit cap, a white shirt and has a beard. The other suspect is bald.



They were both inside the store a short time but got away with what owner Sam Hamade estimates is $100,000 worth of jewelry.



Police arrived just minutes after the robbery but by then the thieves were gone.



Hamade says this will take him years to make up. He says detectives will be there Tuesday to pick up the surveillance video and that he's hoping these faces are known to police.
