Sarasota jewelry heist: $100k stolen in 60 seconds

Two thieves took off with nearly $100,000 in jewelry and rare coins in less than 60 seconds. On March 29 at 1:30 a.m., two people broke into the back door of Estate Coin & Jewelry Galleria. They entered the store wearing hooded sweatshirts and left within 60 seconds after they smashed the glass jewelry cabinets with a crowbar and swiped the jewelry and coins into bags.
Police believe they are professionals. A woman seen going into the nearby store had a similar long braid to the one in the burglary. Police also obtained video footage of the couple entering a neighboring store.
