Dearborn Police Request Help Identifying Smash-and-Grab Robbers (VIDEO)

Surveillance video provided by Fairlane Town Center shows the theft in action.

Dearborn police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying three people wanted for robbing the Macy's department store at Fairlane Town Center last weekend.

According to police, the suspects entered Macy's at 7:43 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, and approached the Fine Jewelry Department. Surveillance video from the store (attached to this article) shows one of the suspects pulling out a blunt object—possibly a hammer—and smashing a jewelry display case.

All three quickly grabbed jewelry from the case and fled the store.

The suspects are described as black males, all around the ages of 18-22, 6 feet tall and with thin builds. Two of the men were wearing gray hoodies, jeans and Timberland boots; the third was wearing a black hat, black hoodie, blue jeans and black shoes.

Police say that similar incidents have been reported in other jurisdictions and may be connected.

Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad is asking anyone with information to contact the Dearborn Police Department tip line at 313-943-3012.

Same thing happened at Costco on Middlebelt and I-96 some days ago. Same MO, same suspect description. Now Costco keeps their jewelry in an area the customers cannot access.

It's pretty easy to "smash and grab" when the store is deserted. Just another disturbing result of the new demographics of diversity that have turned Dearborn into Detroit's favorite breeding ground for crimes of opportunity. Oh, that's right...Detroit doesn't have any more stores to rob.

I didn't know diversity and crime went hand in hand....
