This morning, the NYPD released shocking video of the real life heist, showing the brazen burglars ransacking display cases like hungry piranha.

The incident began at about 5 p.m. Saturday, when three masked men, wearing hats, gloves and dark clothing, entered a building on West 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue and climbed up to the roof, sources said.

They crossed the roof to an adjacent building, which houses Burlington Coat Factory and Ultra Diamonds, and dropped down inside.

Two of the crooks then possibly used a sledgehammer to smash a hole in the wall and crawled inside, sources said.

To cover their tracks, they disabled some cameras and destroyed the DVR system, then shattered numerous display cases with a claw hammer, the sources said.
