Two thieves worked tirelessly to smash a single display case, but it refused to give way. The robbery attempt, which took place at a jewellery store in Malaysia, has gone viral on social media. CCTV footage of a gang of four thieves, their faces concealed with bike helmets, attempting to break the display case of Kedai Emas Sri Alam jewellery store with hammers was shared by the store on July 25. It has since then collected over 5.8 million views on Facebook.
