PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say someone broke through the walls of two downtown Philadelphia businesses and escaped with about $250,000 in cash and merchandise from a jewelry store.
Time & Gold owner Matena Kamara tells Philly.com (http://bit.ly/1NLolEP ) the burglar or burglars first gained access to the basement of a storefront two doors down before breaking through a wall into the basement of a dry cleaning business next door. From the dry cleaners, the burglars drilled through another wall into Time & Gold.
Kamara says she discovered the damage when she opened the store just after 8 a.m. Thursday.
Police have confirmed the robbery at the location but couldn’t provide details.
