Jewel heist!

Two thieves — one in a suit and tie — stole $10,000 in rings and literally shot their way out of a Fulton Street jewelry store on Jan. 9.

The daring heist went down at the jeweler between Flatbush Avenue Extension and Hanover Place when the two men asked to examine engagement rings at around 4:30 pm. The well-dressed thief then brandished a silver pistol and said to the employee, “Give me everything.”

The foolhardy vendor then stepped from behind the counter and attempted to push the thieves out of the store. One of the thieves then pistol-whipped the employee as his partner grabbed a rack of rings.

The employee then alerted the thieves that they had just locked themselves in the store. Undeterred, the pair shot at the glass door and fled in opposite directions.

Where: 585 Fulton St.
