BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (Palm Beach Post) -- The Boynton Beach police department is asking for the public’s help to identify two men who allegedly stole about $3 million in jewelry from a resident’s home on July 28.

Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County is offering a $26,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to the men’s arrest.

Police have not released the homeowner’s names and location of the crime because of “investigative reasons,” said city police spokesman Stephanie Slater. However, they did release video footage taken during the time of the burglary.

The video began with a silver, four-door car that pulled up to the house’s driveway. An unidentified man exited the car and rang the front doorbell.

The video cuts almost 30 minutes later to a camera inside a closet that shows another a man rummage through several drawers. It then shows him stuffing jewelry watches into a white bag.

The video cuts again outside where a man flees the scene in a silver vehicle.

"Years and years of sentimental, collectable pieces were stolen,” Slater said in a statement. “We are urging anyone who may have information about the suspects to please come forward and help police."

Anyone with information is asked to call 561-732-8116 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. You can remain anonymous. Tips can also be submitted anonymously via www.bbpd.org, www.facebook.com/boyntonbeachpolice or the crime tip form on the BBPD MyPD App.

Or at least a rotti or a home security ALARM system. These thugs targeted this house...someone knew these people had this much jewels and told them where, when, how, what. Be careful who you work with, socialize with and flash your stuff to..thugs are EVERYWHERE.

Wow…I'd think that if you can afford 3million$$$'s in jewelry, then you'd probably be able to afford a safe, or at least a safe deposit box! Whew, that's a chunk o'change!!!!
