Jewelry case’s shatterproof glass thwarts would-be robbers
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A brazen daylight robbery turned into a bizarre bungle as would-be robbers were thwarted by shatterproof glass at a jewelry store near Grand Rapids.
Mlive.com reports that two men entered a Jared Galleria of Jewelry store Saturday during business hours with several employees and customers present.
They wore hoods and what were described as ski masks.
Grandville police Sgt. Christine Merryweather says the men used a hammer to try to smash a jewelry case but could not penetrate the shatterproof glass.
They then fled the scene in a dark SUV.
