Police investigate smash-and-grab burglary at Newton jewelry store

At least three suspects were involved in a smash-and-grab theft Sunday morning at a Newton jewelry store, police said.

Shortly after 2 a.m., police were notified of a break-in at New England Diamond and Jewelry Buyers at 660 Washington St., Lieutenant Amanda Hendrickson said. The suspects allegedly broke a front window and stole some items, although police haven’t gotten an inventory from the owner, she said. There were at least three people involved.

It was the first crime of this nature at the jewelry store, owner Dave Alpert said, declining to comment on details.

Police are investigating the circumstances of the break-in, Hendrickson said. No arrests have been made.
