There are new developments in the case of last month's jewelry store burglary in Ozark after several agencies worked to enhance surveillance video.

Several things have changed since the Harbin Jewelry Store burglary last month. The gaping hole in the ceiling has been repaired, and the safe that was destroyed during the crime has been removed.

There are still some steps the store needs to take before things get back to normal.

"Now that we've got the ceiling patched and the floor redone we still need to get a new safe, new security system and, buy more jewelry,” said Employee Debbie Powell.

The mystery around the break-in still remains. Police have been analyzing video taken from the scene, hoping to enhance it to the point where an image of one of the three individuals seen can be identified.

"Three males, all of them being white were inside of the store,” said Deputy Chief of the Ozark Police Myron Williams. “We believe they were communicating with someone on the outside. That’s very apparent."

From the video, some images have in fact been isolated. Judging from the height of one of the safes that was left untouched, police have determined that one of the three white males was 5'6”. He was the one who came through the roof to disable the alarm system and open the door for others, and disable the camera.
