Police are investigating a brazen burglary at Barsky Diamonds in Center City that was all caught on surveillance cameras.
“I had a bunch of trays of diamond earrings down here and they took them all,” says owner Nathan Barsky. When the store closes, so does the security gate. It’s supposed to guard the gems inside. But Barsky says early on the morning of February 13, thieves hot-wired it open. Once that gate was up, the thieves had to get through the door. But the glass has been treated so it can’t be broken. So the burglars had to jimmy the locks.
