The NYPD is looking for five suspects who allegedly broke into a Soundview jewelry store on Sunday and left with expensive bling valued at around $50,000.

Police sources tell the Bronx Times that around 3:45 p.m on Sunday, five men — all estimated to be 20-30 years of age — used a hammer to break into the commercial storefront window of M&N Gold Jewelry, located on 1527 Westchester Ave., and began stealing various pieces of jewelry.

The five men then took off in a black Sedan and fled from the scene. Police sources said in effort to identify the suspect, people can check social media to see if any of the suspects post expensive jewelry online, a common occurrence in smash-and-grab robberies.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
