A smash and grab robbery at a well-known West Seattle business caused so much damage that the store will be closed for months.

Last Friday before closing, three suspects with masks and hoods stormed into West Seattle’s Bellevue Rare Coins, stealing jewelry and cash, according to Seattle Police Department. Owners estimate the damage and theft total in the tens of thousands of dollars.

The store’s marketing director Natan Antolin tells KIRO Newsradio they have given the store’s surveillance video to police.

Teens wanted for murder, string of armed robberies at pot shops

Crooks have done some much damage to a West Seattle business it won’t be able to reopen until this summer.

Antolin says with current supply chain issues, replacing the display cases will take time, and they do not anticipate reopening until at least July.

KIRO Newsradio’s Darren Dedo contributed to this report.
