In the early morning hours Sunday, the thieves apparently used the roof of an Indian restaurant under construction next door to Jewelry World SCV on the 26500 block of Bouquet Canyon Road in Santa Clarita to gain access, then cut through the walls and a vault, according to Sheriff’s Station records.
“They broke into a neighboring business through the roof,” said Sgt. Mike Konecny of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “They went through the wall into Jewelry World and stole a large amount of jewelry.”
Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the report around 4:45 am., according to records.
The store was empty during the burglary.
The thieves reportedly took about $300,000 worth of merchandise, according to Sheriff’s Station records.
A store employee from Jewelry World declined to comment Monday when reached by phone.
The incident is being investigated by the Detective Bureau of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, who did not provide further detail because it was an ongoing investigation.
No arrested have been made in the incident, yet, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials.
