Mr. Bill’s Jewelry Store robbed in 2 minutes

Channel 12 has this video of a thief smashing the door of Mr. Bill’s Jewelry Store at Surrey Square Sunday morning and then smashing display cases containing diamonds and gold in a robbery that took him just 2 minutes. Wearing a black jacket, white gloves, and mask, he seems unconcerned about the alarm going off. Norwood police were at the scene just 37 seconds after being dispatched, but the thief was already gone. Lt. Tom Williams with the NPD gold Channel 12, “(He) Probably knows from prior experience how long it takes an alarm to trip."

Included in the Channel 12 video is a clip showing a man in the same black coat and white gloves inside the Fig Leaf in Hyde Park Square on Saturday talking to a clerk about the jewelry that was later stolen. The Wheel of Justice is offering a thousand dollars for information about the jewelry thief.. Call CrimeStoppers at 352-3040. Callers are identified by code numbers, not names.
