More than $40,000 in antiques was stolen from a store in San Francisco's Financial District.

Police say the smash-and-grab happened at Daniel Stein Antiques on Jackson Street between Montgomery and Sansome.


Police say the suspects broke through a window to get in and smashed the glass cabinet to get the goods.

The thieves left their flashlight behind. They also left some pieces of the tea set behind that dates back to the 18th century. It's silver, which makes is very valuable.


Police say reselling these antiques would be risky, but they are worried the thieves will melt the pieces down and sell the silver.

The store did have surveillance cameras, but police will be looking up and down the street to see if other shops have cameras that caught an image of the bad guys.
