Entry was gained through roof while store was closed over the weekend.
More than $100,000 in jewelry was stolen from Kay Jewelers in Flanders on Sunday after entry was gained through the roof while the store was closed, according to Mount Olive Township police.
Police received a “frantic” phone call Sunday morning at about 11:15 a.m. from a Kay Jewelers employee who said the store at the ITC Crossing on International Drive had been burglarized, Cpl. Eric Anthony said. The employee told police there was no electricity in the store, and the alarm system was no longer working, Anthony said.
When police responded it was determined the safe was broken into and items were stolen, Anthony said. Police also determined entry was gained through the roof of the mall complex sometime between 4 and 11 a.m., Anthony said.
No arrests have been made, Anthony said.
Store management is still determining the exact value of goods taken, but it has been concluded the price tag is more than $100,000, police said.
