HOUSTON --Thieves stole millions of dollars in jewelry from one of Houston's most upscale stores during a brazen heist all caught on camera.
Residents were shocked when they watched the surveillance video.
The heist took place Tuesday around 6 p.m. inside de Boulle Diamond and Jewelry, one of Houston's most upscale shopping places.
In the video, four men dressed in all-black and covered faces can be seen terrorizing the store as customers and employees looked on. Using hammers to smash the display glass, the thieves stuffed top-dollar diamonds inside their bags.
One of the suspects even went back for more. They got away with millions of dollars worth of jewelry.
