Hillsborough deputies are searching for three people they say stole more than $100,000 worth of merchandise from a Tampa jewelry store in a smash-and-grab captured on surveillance video, and a fourth person who drove the getaway vehicle.

Three males wearing masks walked into the Citrus Park Town Center through the employee entrance on the south side of the mall around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday and headed to Diamond Galleria, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

When they got to the jewelry store, they used hammers to break the display cases where “high-end watches” were kept, deputies said. After stealing merchandise valued at more than $100,000, they left the mall, again using the employee entrance.

A driver was waiting in a silver Nissan Murano between the 2020-2022 model years, the Sheriff’s Office said. The men got into the vehicle and the driver left in an unknown direction.

Authorities are looking for this silver Nissan Murano between the 2020-2022 model years in connection to a theft in which Hillsborough deputies say three people stole more than $100,000 worth of merchandise from the Diamond Galleria jewelry store located at Citrus Park Town Center in Tampa.
