KENNEWICK, Wash., -- An estimated $10,000 worth of gemstones was stolen Thursday morning from the Crown Jewel and Beads jewelry store in Kennewick.
Police say someone smashed a glass door at the front of the store with a large rock around 6 o'clock this morning.
Ten trays of loose, semi-precious stones were taken from a display case.
The store's owner says they don't have any security video cameras.
"There was a trail of gemstones from the case to the front door and actually out on the sidewalk," says Owner Ed Gutierrez. "We're small business owners and we're just trying to make a living. It's just unfortunate but it could've been worse."
Police don't have any suspects at this time.
