HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Two suspects have been arrested in a lightning-fast break-in at a Hutchinson jewelry store earlier this month.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/WnE5zl ) police continued looking Monday for a third suspect in the Jan. 12 burglary at R. Westphal Jewelers.

The family-owned store sells high-quality diamond bridal jewelry and other expensive items, but the burglars might not have known what they were looking for.

After crashing a stolen Nissan Maxima through the plate-glass windows, they spent about 19 seconds breaking display cases with crowbars and filling bags with jewelry -- but only made off with items made of sterling silver and cubic zirconium.

The Nissan had been stolen from Wichita. Police are investigating whether the Hutchinson break-in is related to a November smash-and-grab at a pawn shop in Wichita.
