Nurmahal Jewelers in Yuba City had several hundred thousand dollars of high-end gold jewelry stolen in what appears to be an extremely precise heist.
The burglary happened sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, investigators say.
“The family never thought that with a safe this big, five inches thick, no one would ever be able to steal the jewelry inside,” employee Dinesh Virma said.
But that’s exactly what happened.
The thief, or thieves, cut a hole in the wall directly behind the safe, then into the back of the safe, snatching up all the gold inside and leaving only empty red boxes behind.
Despite the loss, the family says their long-time business will bounce back.
