6:38 am
from inside, and it is clear, and it is in living color. this guy takes a big yellow sledgehammer, the kind you would see maybe at a demolition site, when people want to smash dry wall out. and he uses it to walk through two sets every front doors, casually walks to the jewelry case, which just happen to be in a shear coincidence i guess for him, a happy coincidence, because the jewelry case, just short walk, through the front doors, more smashing done there. and he collected a whole bunch of citizen echo watches, which are kind of pricy, if you didn't know, up to 600 bucks on the kohl's website from necklaces, will ever, also up to 600 bucks on the kohl's website, filled another thing you see with construction crews, canvas tool sack. >> you can see him, he has the

6:40 am
somehow, can find something in that video that links him to this case. maybe it is nike sneakers he had on, maybe the construction stuff that he carries, and co-worker may recognize something about him. but police hope so. that's why they put out that video. >> up never know, the movement, the action cents, whatever it may be. quick question. is kohl's open today or still active investigation? >> reporter: yes, they got tull staff that just arrived for work, getting the store ready, see vacuuming going on right through the front doors right now. it will be open. not open obviously will be those doors. you got to use the other doors until they get this door fixed. >> all right, steve, thanks. time now 40:00. remember when we were in high school all looking forward to the big strip in couldn't wait. counting down the days. apparently florida high school marching band, not so much. the once in a lifetime performance, they were headed to rome. had lay over in philadelphia. and they got stuck. so we'll tell you exactly what happened. >> well, you raise all of that mine, like $3,500, and then they got stranded here. so they're trying it make the
6:41 am
best of it, playing games, do all kind of things. these are student and chaperone from a high school in florida. so, the flight ended up being canceled. that's why they got stuck. but here's what compounds this all. half this trip was on a different flight. they're already over there in rome. they're having fun, they're tweeting and sending back all of the message, the other half right there sleeping on the floor stuck here. they wind up at the double tree, been here for two nights, so now american airlines says we'll try make it up to you. they'll get them on flight out of jfk today. >> so sends out the typical statement here in course rides in part: sincerely apologize for the disruption. will try to get them over there. they really care about their customers. hopefully they'll sends them out this morning. so they should be taking off in a couple of hours. $3,500 for the trip. i know the airlines probably going to give them a yesterday. >> i we would hope. who knows. >> but they're head that way hopefully in a couple of hours, we'll check back in. >> 6:41. >> we've been talk about this, really is heart break coming out of hollywood.
