Thieves allegedly stole about $1 million in jewelry from a New Jersey store Thursday, the New York Post reported.

A daring heist in New Jersey resulted in the theft of $1 million worth of jewelry from Venzio Jewelers, according to the New York Post. The theft occurred between 8 p.m. Wednesday and the following morning, but it was only reported at 10 a.m. Thursday. Authorities are still searching for leads, as the suspects remain at large.

The police report reveals the criminals planned their break-in at Venzio Jewelers, the outlet reported. They entered the store’s back office by cutting through a wall from an adjacent empty space. To remain undetected, they cut the store’s phone and alarm lines. They then used a blowtorch to open the safe and stole the jewelry. The method the thieves used to enter the mall, which closes at 9 p.m., remains unclear, the outlet stated.
