BROOKHAVEN, GA (CBS46) -

At first glance, you'd think the video shows two elderly men shopping. But police say it's actually two armed robbers in disguise.

Brookhaven police say the masks, the clothing and even the limp were all part of an act, and it worked. In the video, you can see as an employee of Ermitage Jewelers opens the door.

Minutes after the robbers shuffle into the store, the gig is up. Police say the two men pepper sprayed employees before grabbing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth or Rolex watches.

At one point, one of the thieves shows a gun, and then snatches even more jewelry.

Brookhaven Police tell CBS46 the two were in and out in six minutes.
