A group of armed, masked men broke into the Connecticut home of two jewelry store owners and forced them to go open the shop, where the robbers made off with more than $4 million in jewelry, according to police.

Police said four or five men entered an apartment on Gravel Street in Meriden late Thursday night and bound and gagged two men inside the home with electrical tape.

They took them to Lenox Jewelers, the store the victims own in Fairfield, and stole jewelry from the safe before fleeing, police said.

The store owners were able to free themselves and call police.

None of the victims were seriously injured.

"Aside from being bound and gagged, all of our victims are healthy," said Lt. Mark Walerysiak of the Meriden Police Department.

Investigators are searching for a 2009 silver BMW stolen from one of the victims. It has a Massachusetts license plate of 96NV02.
