CANTON, Ga. — Police are looking for a group of thieves accused of burglarizing a jewelry store. 

The thieves broke into a Kay Jewelers through the ceiling last week, according to Canton police. Police said the thieves triggered an alarm system just before midnight Jan. 4 at the store, which is off Cumming Highway. 

When officers arrived, they said all entrances to the building were secure and none of the windows were broken or tampered with. Police added that they did not find anyone in or around the business.

The next morning authorities returned to the store around 10:45 a.m. in response to a burglary. Police said this time, it seemed the thieves managed to get into the store by cutting a hole in the roof.

"An unknown amount of merchandise was taken during the incident," according to police.

The Canton Police Department said it is working with other agencies in metro Atlanta that have had similar burglaries. Anyone with information is asked to call the CPD at 770-720-4883.
