T'ville jewel thieves leave diamond trail

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Burglars who pried their way into a Thomasville jewelry store left a trail for investigators to follow.

Burglars broke into the Holly-Wood Jewelers on Jackson Street early Saturday. They used a crowbar to break into jewelry display cases and grabbed diamonds rings and bracelets.

But as they made their getaway, they left a trail of diamonds outside the store. "At this point we have no suspects in the case. The investigation continues. There is some evidence that was left at the scene that is being processed by crime scene investigators and that's where we are at this point," Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.

Crowbars were also used to break open glass display cases. The crowbars were left behind. Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call Crimestoppers at 227-3305.
