Be careful out there this weekend. CBS LA reports that a "smash-and-grab" robbery took place at Zales in the Westside Pavillion shopping center around 8:20pm last night, resulting in a loss of $130,000 worth of jewelry. Police are currently on the hunt for the three men who smashed the jewelry store's glass cases with a hammer and fled the scene in a sedan. No injuries have been reported. [CBS]
