Jupiter Jewelry Store Burglarized 5 Years Ago, Gets Hit Again Overnight

A local jewelry store targeted by thieves more than five years ago was again the site of a burglary sometime overnight.  

CBS 12 reporter Yaremi Farinas is at Provident Jewelry in Jupiter where the owner says crooks broke in, smashed 15 cases and got away in less than 3 minutes after the alarm went off.

She tells us that an ax was used to break into the store and video shows four masked burglars inside.

Back in 2011, a group of burglars broke into a vault at the same store and made off with $15 million worth of jewelry.  They had hours to get into the vault because they broke in during a weekend and disabled the alarm.

Only one suspect was sent to prison.

Pedro Luis Enriquez received 15 years after pleading guilty to the burglary.

Enriquez used a jackhammer tool and a cutting torch to get through the vault. Police found a bottle of wine and a flashlight inside the vault. DNA on those items led to Enriquez, nicknamed "El Loco." Police said then they suspected at least three people had a role in the robbery. 

As for this latest burglary, police are looking at surveillance video in hopes of finding the crooks.
