NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A trio of thieves in suits smashed glass and fired shots Tuesday in a bold broad daylight robbery at the Tourneau jewelry store on Madison Avenue.
One person was in custody late Tuesday afternoon in connection with the incident. Two others remained on the loose.
As CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported, three men wearing dark suits, dark shirts and ties entered the store at 53rd Street and Madison Avenue, sources said.
“Upon entering, one of the males fired one shot from a semi-automatic handgun into the floor,” said NYPD Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubry. “The other two males, armed with hammers, began smashing display cases, and removed several Rolex watches, placing them into duffel bags.”
