Two thieves rammed a stolen Ford pickup truck through a New Jersey jewelry store window early Valentine's Day morning in a daring smash-and-grab robbery.

Security footage shows the tailgate of a Ford pickup truck bursting through the jewelry store's window in Paramus, N.J. The pair of thieves scrambled around the vehicle and wrapped cables around a massive safe. They used the truck to haul the safe out to a waiting front-end loader, which dumped the safe into a second stolen Ford truck.

"They were professional. They had a plan and executed it very well," said Detective Mike Kelly with Paramus Police told WABC.

The entire heist took two minutes. Police say both trucks and the front-end loader were stolen, along with a third truck. It's estimated that they stole $250,000 worth of jewels and did about $100,000 in damages to the building.

      It happened in New Jersey. The trail will eventually lead to underlings of the Governor. The underlings will be questioned, but lawyer up and clam up. When the Governor is asked about the robbery at a press conference he's quoted as saying: "At least a full 40% of my time is spent on Hurricane Sandy related issues, the other 60% is being spent on keeping my fat ass out of jail for being ultimately responsible for the dirty political trick of closing traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge. If you think that I had anything to do with this heist, fuggeddabouddit. However, I do have several former political appointees whom I'll be glad to throw under that bus.

      Latest in this breaking story, supposedly the thieves were reportedly working for the Democratic campaign fund and were finally apprehended with all of the stolen property in a Federal "safe-house".

      The thieves reportedly tried using a Toyota pickup the first few attempts but were unable to break through the wall due to software glitches and gas pedal concerns. After refusing to even get in the Dodge Ram, claiming that the embarassment in driving one would be similar to using a pink baby stroller, they realized like everyone else, that Ford was the best truck out there.
