SANFORD (CBS4) — Police have closed down several stores at a central Florida mall after a group of men wielding sledgehammers robbed a jewelry store.
The robbery at the Seminole Town Center occurred as families were waiting nearby to take a photo with Santa on Sunday. No injuries were reported.
Mayors Jewelers store manager Neil Norton says the thieves could end up on a “stupid crimes” show. He noted that they were captured on video and left behind blood samples and a hammer. They also went for the least-valuable cases in the store.
