KANSAS CITY — Thieves took a lot of time and muscle to pull off a robbery at a Kansas City jewelry store.
Kansas City police say the thieves broke a hole in a 6-inch concrete block wall and then cut into a double-layered steel metal safe at Vinca Jewelry on Labor Day.
Police and the store's owner, Simon Zouein, declined to say how much the thieves took. But Zouein said they got loose diamonds, gold chains, and wedding and engagement rings from metal boxes in the safe.
The Kansas City Star reports that Zouein said the thieves got to the store via a private alley that is locked and then through an enclosed walkway between his store and a restaurant.
