3 suspects wanted after stealing $2 million in jewelry during heist in Brooklyn

PARK SLOPE, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Surveillance video captured three armed suspects pulling off a brazen jewelry heist in Brooklyn as they smashed glass display cases and managed to get away with $2 million in jewelry.

Customized one-of-a-kind pieces and a curated collection is what you'll find at Facets, a jewelry store in Park Slope.

All that sparkle drove the wrong kind of attention on Sunday when the owner Irina Sulay buzzed one man in and two more followed.

"He reached in his pocket, and I remember thinking this in my head 'how is he pulling this long thing out, what is this' and it was a hammer he pulls it out and says 'this is how you use a hammer,' and he just started banging," Sulay said.

The smash and grab was caught on the store's many cameras.

Inside the smashed cases were engagement rings. The robbers made off with about 100 of them, worth a value of about $2 million.

"It looks like they knew exactly where to go," Sulay said.

When she moved to use a phone, Sulay got a warning.

"He curses and says, 'don't move, what are you doing I'm going to shoot you, don't move,'" she said.
