OXON HILL, Md. (AP) - Police in Prince George's County are investigating a $500,000 heist at an Oxon Hill jewelry store.

Police on Friday released a video from the scene in hopes of generating leads.

The robbery took place in May at Rivertowne Jewelers on the 6100 block of Oxon Hill Road. Authorities are now releasing the video in hopes of getting leads. 

Police believe the robbers broke into the store through the roof in the middle of the night, lowering tools down through a hole and using a blow torch to break open the safe.

Authorities say the robbers spent hours inside the store and made off with an estimated $500,000 worth of jewelry
