Arlington County Police say four masked men entered a Pentagon City jewelry store, smashed a glass display case with a hammer and made off with 23 Rolex watches worth more than $600,000.

Tuesday's morning's crime at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City Mall took about 30 seconds. The suspects fled in a car waiting at the side of the mall and driven by a fifth person.

Police say the vehicle is described as a charcoal gray four-door sedan.

All four suspects are described as black males and wearing ski masks. Three of the suspects were wearing all dark clothing and the fourth suspect was wearing a red hooded jacket and dark pants.

It was the second smash-and-grab crime at the mall in two months. On Feb. 4, four masked men walked into the Zales Jewelers at the Fashion Centre, shattered a display case with hammers and made off with $128,000 in rings. The men fled in a car driven by a fifth person. Police have not said if they believe the two crimes are related.
