MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) – -

Memphis police say at 7:39 p.m. Saturday, five to six men entered Reeds Jewelry, and started smashing the display cases with hammers. Employees ran to the rear of the business as the men reportedly took 65 Rolex watches valued at $11,000 each. Police say the men put the items in pillow cases then ran from the business using two different exits near the business. 

It was earlier reported that shots were fired, but officers on the scene say this was just the sound of the display cases being broken at the time.

At this point in the investigation, police say this is a theft from a business.

The mall was placed on lock down and reopened. There were no injuries.

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.
