ARLINGTON, Va. -

With just over a week until Valentine's Day, Arlington County Police are investigating a smash-and-grab at a jewelry store.

Surveillance video shows four men walk into Zales jewelry store inside the Fashion Center at Pentagon City just after 11 a.m. Monday. They were wearing hoodies and police say their faces may have been concealed.

At least one of the suspects was armed with a hammer and began smashing away at a display case. All four men then grabbed jewelry. Police say they made off with $128,000 in diamond rings.

The suspects had a getaway driver waiting in the parking garage. They took off in a red sedan, which crashed through the exit arm of the garage as it fled.

Investigators are checking security cameras in the parking garage to see if they can get a better description on the car or its tag numbers.

No one in the store was hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
