Once inside, the three masked men dressed in black “then smashed through the display cases with a hammer and removed a large quantity of diamond jewelry.” The police said in a press release.

The robbers are seen on video pushing boxes of high-quality jewelry into a grocery delivery bag before fleeing the store on foot.

Multiple outlets reported that the total value of the gems stolen from Rocco was around $2.15 million.

The entire robbery took place in about 30 seconds. No injuries were reported.

Witnesses speaking to CBS New York said the robbery appeared to have been planned because it was carried out so quickly.

“They came in, boom boom boom, in and out and away,” said one man.

The NYPD is asking the public for help in identifying the four men and is offering up to $3,500 as a reward.
