Early yesterday morning Loveland police got a call from an alarm company to report an alarm at Helzberg Diamonds at Centerra. Officers arrived on scene within four minutes and saw a vehicle had smashed into the front doors. They also saw that Zales was broken into in a similar fashion. A K-9 team was called in as well as a helicopter from Denver Police Department.

CBS Denver reported that about an hour and a half earlier, thieves crashed an SUV into the Shane Co. jewelry store in Westminster and took off with the contents of the store.

Loveland Detectives are working with other law enforcement agencies in the Metro-Denver area to determine if these burglaries are connected to recent incidents in other jurisdictions. Additional information will be released when it becomes available.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Loveland Police Department at (970) 667-2151.
