Lexington Police are searching for two men who they said took thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from a downtown business.

Officers said two men walked into Shelia Bayes’ Fine Jewelry, which is in the Lexington Center, around 2:15 p.m. on Saturday.

According to police, the suspects then used a sledgehammer to smash open a display case.

Officers said the men grabbed around $150,000 worth of Rolex Watches.

Police said they then ran off and jumped in a getaway car on Vine Street.

Officers think the two men might live somewhere outside of Lexington.

They said no one was hurt.
