NEW DETAILS: Up to $10M stolen during heist at famous Buckhead jewelry store

ATLANTA — Police believe anywhere from $5 to $10 million in jewelry and cash was stolen earlier this month when thieves hit a famous Buckhead jewelry store.

Channel 2's Cobb County Bureau Chief Chris Jose obtained a lot of new information about the case Thursday.

Channel 2 Action News first told you about the burglary at Icebox Diamonds and Watches on Peachtree Road over the weekend.

At the time, we knew two armed men followed the manager home from dinner.

Once his wife also returned home, the two men -- wearing ski masks -- barged in with guns drawn.


After demanding codes to the safes at the store, one of the men left and met up with a second crew that was waiting at the store.

According to police, the men threatened to kill the couple if they didn't do what they were told.

The thieves were inside for hours, ransacking the place and getting away with anything they could get their hands on.
