Brevard, N.C. -

Investigators from the Brevard Police Department continue to follow up on tips regarding a group of thieves who stole $25,000 of merchandise from Love's Jewelry and Gifts.

Surveillance cameras were rolling as the five-member team ripped off the store.

"They really knew exactly what to do," said Det. Lt. Steve Woodson. "In my opinion, this is a group that actually travels around and does this kind of crime."

Woodson describes the suspects as experienced, rehearsed and knowledgeable.

They came into the shop Saturday afternoon in two separate groups and worked together to distract the employees.

"Because they entered the store separately, we had no idea that they were in fact together," said Tracey Love.

The surveillance video shows two females and one male occupying the clerks. Investigators say they even used a dog as a prop.

"She was using the pet as an excuse that she couldn't reach for items that she wanted to look at," Woodson said.

At the same time, the second group worked to open a jewelry case.

In the video, you see one of the suspects motion to the first group because they can't open the case. A man then comes over and reaches into the display, grabs the jewelry, and they all walk out.

"They were very open and very friendly. There was nothing at all suspicious about them," Love said.

It took the thieves less than 12 minutes to rob the store.

Brevard Police is asking for the public's help. If you any information about the incident or have seen the suspects before, call 828-883-2212.
