Smashed windows and bits of broken glass were left behind at an Encinitas jewelry store overnight after unknown thieves tried to break into the business.
Deputies said the attempted break-in happened around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday at David Bernatz Jewelers in the 1000 block of North El Camino Real. The windows to the shop were shattered and employees were left to clean the mess.
Deputies said there were no arrests in the case, as the suspect quickly fled the scene. A description of the suspects was not available.
No injuries were reported in the would-be heist.
