Two thieves have been caught on camera stealing nearly $1 million dollars worth of jewelry from a Miami store.
Over the span of four hours, two unidentified suspects broke into a neighboring nail salon before making their way into C4G Jewelers in Hialeah early on Monday morning.
The duo then spent hours breaking the shared wall between the salon and the jewelry store before finally getting through.
‘It was easy just to get in. No alarm no security nothing,’ store owner Oscar Zegarras said. ‘They made a hole, and they went to my store from there.’
Footage shows one of the burglars opening the door from the inside and the second suspect walking in with a type of metal wire in a circular shape, which he threw over the safe
The robbers then connected the wire to a blue and white pickup truck, got into the vehicle and drove away with Zegarra’s ‘life savings’
Footage shows the duo, who are wearing hoodies and have their faces hidden, once they made their way into the premises.
They were seen attaching a wire to a six-foot safe before pulling it out the door with a pick-up truck.
The distressed owner said losing the safe is the worst possible outcome.
‘This is the nightmare I never wanted. And it happened today,’ he said.
‘We have 12 employees, which they’re part of my family. They’re not actually blood, but I take care of them like family. We’ve been together for many years.
‘This is, for us, the high season. That’s when we make the most profit from all the bad seasons we just passed. This just happened and that’s crazy. That’s crazy.’

He says that the alarm never went off in the store and he only came to know about the theft at around 9am.
