HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A Huntsville jewelry store has been the target of burglars twice in one week.

Investigators were called to the scene at Sabghi's Jewelers in the 7500 block of Memorial Parkway SW just after 3 a.m. Thursday.

One storefront window was shattered. Several glass cases may have been the target of the smash-and-grab burglar. Watches in particular were reported among the missing items.

Last week, Sabghi's was struck by a similar burglary. Surveillance video showed a woman breaking in through the front window, smashing several cases and quickly leaving with an unknown amount of jewelry. Her face was obscured by a plastic grocery bag.

Officials will not say more about the possible suspect in the Thursday morning burglary, except to say they have "solid leads." The owner of the store said that after looking at surveillance video from the overnight robbery, he believes the same woman is the culprit.

Police are continuing to investigate.
