MOREHEAD, Ky. (WKYT) - Thieves cut their way into a jewelry store in Morehead over the weekend and stole thousands of dollars worth of inventory. Caskey's Jewelry is closed while the investigation and repairs are going on.
Owner Cindy Caskey-Moore says their janitor noticed the break-in early Sunday morning.
"When I came to the store, the alarm system had been cut, the jewelry had been pulled out of the showcases, displays thrown on the floor, completely cleaned out," explained Caskey-Moore.
Police say thieves cut a hole in the store's roof. They climbed down, stole inventory, and walked out the back.
The jewelry store is connected to a gun and pawn shop. Workers believe no guns were taken and that thieves only focused on gold and silver inside the jewelry store.
"Thirty-five years of time, blood, sweat, and tears gone," Caskey-Moore said.
