Four masked men entered a Pentagon City jewelry store, smashed a glass display case with a hammer and took 23 Rolex watches worth about $609,000, Arlington County police said.

Tuesday morning's crime at Tourneau on the ground floor of the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City Mall took about 30 seconds. The thieves fled in a charcoal gray four-door sedan waiting at the side of the mall and driven by a fifth person.

It was the second smash-and-grab crime at the mall in two months. On Feb. 4, four masked men walked into the Zales Jewelers at the Fashion Centre, shattered a display case with hammers and made off with $128,000 in rings. The men fled in a car driven by a fifth person.

Police have not said if they believe the two crimes are related.
