CCTV has captured the moment three brazen thieves break into a jewellery store at a Logan shopping centre, stealing thousands of dollars worth of stock.
The robbery took place in the early hours on Wednesday, when a white Hyundai SUV entered the car park of Springwood Shopping Mall around 4.10am.
Police said moments later, three offenders used an “unknown instrument” to force entry to the front doors of the Fitzgerald Avenue complex.

The trio then forced their way into the jewellery store and stole a significant amount of jewellery, with vision showing the offenders rummaging through the shop and jumping on counters.
Officers investigating the break-in yesterday spotted the Hyundai parked on Karri Avenue, which led them to a home on Brownhill Street.
A 19-year-old Waterford West man was taken into custody at the property and has since been charged with two counts of enter premises with intent and one count each of possessing dangerous drugs and possess utensils.
The man has also been charged with one count of enter premises and commit offence in relation to another jewellery store robbery, which occurred at a shopping complex in Sunnybank Hills on November 14.
He is due to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court today.
Two other offenders remain at large, with investigations continuing.
