HOUSTON (KTRK) — Smash and grab robberies are meant to be fast, but at one Houston jewelry store, the smash and grab robbery seemed like an orchestrated event.

According to KTRK, the robbery happened Tuesday at Boulle Diamond in the River Oaks area. Surveillance video from the business shows four men coming into the store while it was open and immediately start smashing the glass cases and grabbing whatever expensive jewelry they can.

KTRK reports the suspects got away with at least a million dollars worth of jewelry. Law enforcements experts tell KTRK the thieves may be a part of a theft gang committing similar high-dollar heists across the country.
