A smash and grab burglary in Olivette has police seeking a Lexus SUV. Timekeepers Jewelry and Clock Shop on Olive Boulevard sits less than 50 yards from the Olivette Police Station, but that didn't stop thieves from smashing a truck through the front of the store. An Olivette police officer at the station heard the alarm bells sound around 5:00 a.m. and went to investigate. He spotted a stolen Dodge Ram pickup that had smashed through the front glass of the store and he a light-colored SUV that was fleeing the scene. Police chased the SUV on northbound 170 to Natural Bridge where the chase was abandoned due to a high rate of speed. An employee of the store says glass showcases, clocks and music boxes were among the inventory left smashed and broken.
