Robbers on motorcycles attack mall jewelry store in $3.1 million heist
Posted by Staff
Shoppers at London's Brent Cross mall may have thought they'd walked onto the set of a movie shoot on Tuesday morning. Fifteen minutes after the shopping center opened, a group of six black-clad robbers on three motorcycles rode through the second floor of the complex, wielding axes and bats. The thieves' destination was jewelry store Fraser Hart, where they grabbed Cartier and Rolex watches after smashing windows to get inside. The Metropolitan Police estimate their haul to be more than 2 million British pounds, or $3.1 million. Or maybe a little less: Witnesses noted that the robbers dropped some of their expensive loot as they sped away from the scene. Mbr Facebook Fark Furl
