The second smash and grab occurred about an hour later at Nu Fashion Beauty on South Broadway.  Authorities arrived on the scene and found the same vehicle used in the first robbery.  There are no suspects at this time.

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.
