It’s not often you hear about thieves getting away with over a million dollars worth of jewelry, but that’s exactly what happened Friday at the Kay jewelers in Hinesville.

And that store was closed Monday afternoon as the investigation into the incident continues.

According to Hinesville Police, the jewelry heist took place shortly after midnight on Friday morning.

Officers who responded to the alarm saw nothing in their initial investigation. It wasn’t until employees showed up at the business about 10:00 a.m. Friday morning that they discovered a hole in the roof and the jewelry missing from the safe.

And this may not be the only such case like this. The investigation is looking into similar cases which may have occurred in other local agencies and neighboring states.

Hinesville Police are still waiting to receive the surveillance video from Friday’s burglary.

If you have any information call Hinesville Police at 912-876-8211.
