Newly released surveillance video shows a brazen jewelry heist at an Indianapolis Macy's.

The robbery took only minutes and police say it appears the duo had a plan and carried it out without a hitch.

The men got away with well over $100,000 worth of jewelry after smashing into a display case with an ax.

Security expert Dan Aasen believes the heist was planned from start to finish.

"It happened so fast and they went to a specific area," he said, looking at the video. "I guess they previously cased the place or had inside information. You noticed they went to one, they didn't go to the others. I am not a jewelry expert and I would not know which case to go to."
