    Sledgehammer bandits strike again!

    They hit a jewelry store in West Hartford, CT earlier this year if you remember the post...now they've moved on!

    Greenwich, Conn. (WTNH) - Brazen robbers stormed a Greenwich jewelry store in broad daylight, swinging sledgehammers to get to the goods.

    The robbery happened Tuesday morning at Betteridge Jewelers on Greenwich Avenue.

    Owner Terry Betteridge tells News 8 it was a frightening scene.

    That's what I call a smash and grab. Hope they catch up with them soon.

    They have to use sledgehammers, they can't have guns!

    sorry sketch. I thought Ct was a suburb of metro NY.

    I lived at 40 N. Lincoln, in Greenwich, Ct. briefly in the 60s. It was a burb then, I thought it still was.

    Well if you live in CT you still abide by our laws, and we give out permits quite regularly....which is surprising for such a liberal state. Just wish they would have some reciprocity...

    That's got to be freaky to see three guys walk in and start smashing cases, glass flying ? Lets hope the BG's get greedy and find them selfs in one of those stores that can be locked down with the store owner holding a firearm while they wait for police.

    Betteridge thinks perhaps this crime would not have happened if more cops were walking the beat in the area, which is home to several high-end jewelry stores.

    I disagree, I think that there would not be a 'repeat' crime if the owner had taken out a Glock in .45 or 9mm and drilled each of the dirtbags holding a sledgehammer.OMOYMV
