Police investigate burglary at Valley Plaza Mall jewelry store

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield police are investigating a brazen break-in burglary at a jewelry store at the Valley Plaza Mall Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to a call of a burglary at Kevin Jewelers just after 2 p.m. 

A Bakersfield police spokesperson said two men wearing masks broke through a glass window and stole several items from the store. It's still unclear what was taken.

Witnesses said the burglars used a sledge hammer to break in. The sound of the glass shattering was so loud, witnesses said it sounded like gunfire. Police said no shots were fired, however.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call Bakersfield police at 327-7111.
