A jewelry store at Borgata in Atlantic City was robbed of about $500,000 on Monday, the night the casino celebrated its 10th anniversary with a star-studded concert.

According to Sgt. Monica McMenamin, security cameras caught three robbers who did not appear to be armed. The men took almost half a million dollars worth of merchandise in what authorities are calling a "smash-and-grab theft."

The men were later spotted leaving the casino in a dark-colored vehicle. The car was reportedly not parked in the casino's garage.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call police at 609-347-5766 or Crime Stoppers at 609-652-1234. Information may also be texted anonymously to tip411 (847-411) beginning the text with ACPD.
