NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An Antioch market was robbed of over $330,000 in jewelry and cash early Tuesday morning.
According to police, two suspects cut a hole in the roof of King Market at 1801 Antioch Pike and climbed down a pipe into the back workshop, which is the only room without security cameras.
The suspects allegedly broke into a small safe before attempting to get into another by drilling through sheet rock and coming in from the side.
The store suffered around $7,000 in damage to its roof.
Over $300,000 was stolen in jewelry, including more than 100 ounces of gold, personal items and diamonds. Another $30,000 in cash was also taken.
“I was shocked, I guess. I can’t believe they do what they do. So, I just don’t know,” said owner Lay Sayasack.
Police said the intruders left behind their tools and some keys.
The owner also claims no one knows about the small safe but management.
The store is offering a $10,000 reward for information, separate from the $1,000 possible through submitting a tip.
