WATCH | Robbers go 'window shopping' with hammer in Centurion

A gang of robbers took window shopping to another level when they smashed their way into the front of a jewellery store and stuffed bags with loot in Centurion.

The audacious smash-and-grab heist happened at Mall @ Reds in Rooihuiskraal on July 31 and was captured by CCTV security cameras.

Police spokesperson captain Agnes Huma confirmed the robbery‚ carried out at 7:45pm.

In the footage the robbers are seen repeatedly hitting and later kicking the display window‚ holding bags ready for the loot.

Huma said the owner closed the shop at 7:15pm and activated the alarm. The footage shows a security device‚ possibly pepper spray‚ being activated but not deterring the robbers from the task at hand.

No arrests have been made.
