Surveillance video shows the four men suspected of a smash and grab at a Memphis jewelry store.

At around 2:10 p.m. on August 27, four men went into Sissy's Log Cabin jewelry store on South Grove Park Road.

Three of the suspects used hammers to smash open display cases, while a fourth suspect stayed at the front door as a lookout.

The men took several expensive watches before running out of the store and driving off in a white Kia and black Chevrolet pickup truck.

Parents who picked up their children at Christ Methodist Day School, right across the street from Sissy's, didn't like the sound of a robbery this size so close to their children's school.

"I hope no one was hurt. That's a wonderful store," Gail Camp said.

Camp was picking up her grandson as the school when she found out about the robbery.

Others, like Michael Jones, who was picking up his children, said it looked like the robbery was the job of professionals.

"What I've seen as what it pertains to the video, it looks to be professionally done, something of that sort," Jones said. "When you have individuals coming in all black with hammers, they know exactly what they were going for and what they were attempting to do. It's something out of the movies."

Despite the robbery, the parents said they still feel their children are safe.

"Great teachers, great school, great head master. I mean, I definitely put full confidence in the safety of my children," Jones said.
