Police are warning Magnificent Mile businesses after a high-end watch store was burglarized Friday morning.

About 11 a.m., the burglars entered the jewelry and watch store in the 800 block of North Michigan, smashed the glass display case and stole multiple watches, according to an alert from Chicago Police. They then drove off in a gold Jeep Cherokee.

The burglars were described as 5-foot-10 to 6-foot black men between 20 and 25 years old and about 165 pounds, police said. One of them wore a distinctive black jacket with multiple military patches.
