Smash and grab robbery in Cartersville caught on camera

Posted: Updated:
CANTON, Ga. -

An investigation is underway into a bold smash-and-grab robbery case at a jewelry store in Canton.

Police say two people armed with handguns robbed the Cartersville Jewelry Exchange last Friday. The crime was caught on surveillance camera.

The video shows the hooded robbers marching through the Canton store at gunpoint. Two female employees hit the floor as the intruders began to break the glass display cases with a hammer.

Canton police say the armed robbers managed to get jewelry from the first case, but weren't able to get into a second one.

Police say the armed robbers parked their stolen Ford pickup truck on the side of the building before going through the front door, past the Christmas tree with guns and a hammer.

Authorities said the masked robbers fled the scene in this stolen pickup truck with an undisclosed amount of money. They abandoned the truck in a neighborhood.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact police.
