Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Thieves Steal $4M Worth of Jewels After Posing as Customers

Other top surveillance videos of the week include a car-tossing tornado, shoplifters brawling, arson and more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

Film and television are great ways to escape normal life. It’s fun to watch scenarios that don’t often occur in real life. It’s always amazing when surveillance cameras catch moments that look like they belong on-screen (but not streaming from an NVR).

The latest incident like this occurred during a brazen day-time robbery at a jewelry store in New York City’s Diamond District.

Surveillance video shows three men sitting in a back room when one of them suddenly pulls out a gun. The other men, also armed, then round up the employees and tie them up before looting the store.

Investigators say the suspects made off with as much as $4 million in jewels.

Five suspects thought they would be able to make off with expensive Canada Goose jackets from a clothing store outside of Boston. Unfortunately for them, the staff had other ideas.

Surveillance videos show the thieves making their way from the back of the store to the front with their arms full of the jackets. However, store staff quickly block them from exiting the store.

The suspects eventually escape to their getaway vehicle with only one jacket, but not without being pursued by store employees who snapped plenty of pics of their license plate.
