BELMONT -- Thieves busted into a jewelry store Sunday night and made off with an undisclosed amount of rings, watches and necklaces, police said.
After prying open a door to the store in the 1000 block of El Camino Real about 8:25 p.m., the burglars smashed a display case. Though police arrived within two minutes of the alarm going off, the suspects got away, said Belmont police Lt. Pat Halleran.
Authorities didn't name the store and said the loss was still being tabulated.
Police said the suspects also tried breaking into a neighboring hair salon, but they were unsuccessful.
