$50K in jewelry stolen from Grass Valley store

At least $50,000 in jewelry was stolen today in an early-morning “smash and grab” burglary at JCPenney.

“They took anything that wasn’t nailed down,” Grass Valley Police Capt. Dave Remillard said Wednesday.

Burglars smashed the front window at the budget department store at about 3:24 a.m., according to an alarm that alerted law enforcement.

It took the thieves less than three minutes to destroy every glass display case and grab all of the watches and jewelry before police arrived.

“They went in really quick,” Remillard said.

Police processed the scene for evidence this morning. There are presently no suspects.
