Police responding to a pre-dawn alarm Tuesday at the Nordstroms at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia found a smashed window and broken jewelry cases.
Jewelry and designer women's handbags were missing, and the store's surveillance video showed three men wearing dark clothes filling bags with items from the shattered cases.
The three fled through an emergency exit, setting off the alarm shortly after 4 a.m., Arcadia police said.
Store officials estimated that $100,000 to $200,000 worth of jewelry had been stolen along with purses worth between $20,000 and $30,000.
