HINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) - Police are on high alert after a smash and grab robbery at a popular jewelry store in Hingham early Friday morning.

Officials said the suspect broke into the DeScenza Diamonds jewelry store on Derby Street at around 3:10 a.m. When police arrived on the scene, they found a window smashed beside the front door and damaged display cases and shelves.

Surveillance video showed a white male suspect dressed in all black clothing. He was wearing a ski mask that covered most of his face. He was carrying a hammer and had tried to pry the front door open before throwing a rock through the window.

He had fled by the time police arrived with an undisclosed amount of jewelry.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Detective Robert Mansfield at (781) 749-1212 or to leave an anonymous tip using the Drop-A-Dime link on www.hpd.org.
