Burglars struck for a second straight day at a Torrance jewelry store Saturday, this time making off with a slightly better quality haul.

Police responded to the Robbins Brothers store at Torrance and Hawthorne boulevards when an alarm sounded at 5:10 a.m., Torrance police Lt. Steven Jenkinson said.

Officers found someone had smashed a side emergency exit door, entered the business and shattered some display cases that contained some "lower-end jewelry," Jenkinson said. More expensive jewelry was locked away.

The thieves scooped up some jewels worth about $5,000 and took off.

Police are reviewing video surveillance and do not know if the thieves are the same ones who struck the store about 5:30 a.m. Friday.

In that crime, burglars smashed a window, entered a room behind the showroom and collected several cubic zirconia jewels worth about $500.
