The Dallas Police Department just sent word -- not to mention the video you see above: Two men hit the Galleria Bachendorf's yesterday around 8 p.m., getting away with close to $100,000 in jewels in a very short amount of time.

The attached video shows the first suspect getting off the mall escalator while talking on his cell phone. He is described as a Latin male in his late teens to mid 20s wearing all dark clothing and a dark baseball cap with a white logo. The second suspect is shown walking into the jewelry store wearing a dark-colored soccer jersey under a dark jacket. He is seen walking over to a display case and prying it open before running off with several pieces of jewelry. A store employee can be seen confronting him before he runs off. Both suspects are then seen running through the mall. An off-duty officer was able to apprehend a third suspect waiting outside in a suspect vehicle; however these two suspects were not located.
