Thieves use hammer to steal $29K in jewelry from New York City Macy's

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN (WABC) -- New video shows two burglars using hammers to break a glass display at a store in Brooklyn before stealing $29,000 worth of jewelry.

Police say the pair forced open a side door at the Macy's in downtown Brooklyn last Sunday night.

Authorities believe they're also responsible for a second break-in at a CVS on 8th Avenue in Manhattan a couple hour earlier.

In that incident, they allegedly stole electronic equipment and bottles of water.

Anyone with information in this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
