Burglars net $1M in jewelry during ‘sophisticated’ Puyallup heist

At least three people stole $1 million worth of  jewelry from a Puyallup jewelry store Sunday night in what police described as “sophisticated” burglary, police said.

The suspects burglarized Gold Definitions, 4600 block of South Meridian Street, by cutting cut two large holes in the roofs of two adjoining businesses, then cutting through several walls to gain access to the store. The burglars then cut away a wall to gain access to a safe, where they stole a number of jewelry items with a retail value of $1 million.

Surveillance cameras show the burglary occurred over a four-hour period, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Puyallup Police Department Tip Line at 253-770-3343.
