CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A store in the South Side Bridgeport neighborhood lost nearly $100,000 worth of jewelry during a smash-and-grab robbery early Tuesday.

Three males broke into Oscar’s Jewelers in the 3400 block of South Halsted Street and stole about $100,000 worth of jewelry, according to a police report.

Officers who responded to a burglar alarm found a broken glass window at the front entrance to the store, and a hammer inside a bucket near the broken window, according to the report.

A surveillance video showed three males—all wearing dark clothing—breaking in through the front window and exiting the same way, according to the report.

Several jewelry displays were broken and items were missing, police said.

The store estimates $100,000 worth of jewelry was stolen.
