Three masked men in Florida were captured on video stealing more than $100,000 worth of jewelry in a brazen smash-and-grab at a mall on Tuesday, authorities said.

The theft happened just after 1:30 p.m. at the Diamond Galleria store at the Citrus Park Town Center, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

The suspects entered the mall through an employee entrance on the building’s south side before making their way to the jewelry store, the sheriff’s office said. 

Surveillance video shows the men shattering glass display cases holding high-end watches with what appear to be hammers.

The suspects made off with more than $100,000 worth of merchandise and exited through the same employee entrance where a fourth suspect in a getaway car was waiting, according to investigators.

The suspects fled in the vehicle, believed to be a 2020-2022 silver Nissan Murano.

“These suspects are seen on camera and video, so it’s only a matter of time before they are caught for the crimes they committed today,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a written statement.
