As Breitbart Texas reported this week, a group of gunmen spent about 8-10 minutes using hammers to break through the bullet-resistant glass at a jewelry store in the upscale Polanco neighborhood in Mexico City.

The gunmen allegedly stole about 15 luxury watches and escaped after the armed security at the shopping center did not intervene or call 911.
