    Fullerton Jewelry Heist: Smash and Grab

    Fullerton Police have released surveillance video of what they are calling a well-choreographed robbery at the Fullerton Jewelry Mart late Thursday afternoon.

    Police said three groups of two robbers entered the mart simultaneously through three separate doors, started smashing jewelry cases and grabbing everything they could.

    When the vendors realized the robbers only had hammers and no guns they fought back with chairs and anything else they could pick up and throw at them.

    Police are now looking for nine men in their 20s -- the six suspected robbers and three other men who were waiting outside in getaway cars.
