500G jewelry smash-and-grab at Atlantic City's Borgata


A trio of thieves orchestrated a $500,000 smash-and-grab robbery last night of a jewelry store at the Borgata in Atlantic City last night, according to news accounts.

The heist occured in the Borgata Hotel amid the casino's 10th anniversary celebration.   Police said Borgata security called police at 8:45 p.m. to report the theft in a jewelry store. Police said the three men, who appeared to be unarmed, fled on foot before taking off in a dark colored vehicle.
