On Thursday, March 29, 2018 at approximately 1:30 a.m., Sarasota Police Officers were dispatched to 1650 Main Street reference to a burglary. Officers arrived on scene and found the rear door forced open. Video of the burglary shows two individuals coming into the store in hooded sweatshirts and in about 60 seconds they can been seen smashing the glass of the jewelry cabinets with a crowbar and stealing jewelry and coins.
