This is the dramatic moment two men drilled their way into a jewellery store in a Hollywood-style raid.

Two masked men in white overalls were caught on CCTV cameras crawling around on the floor of the shop in the city of Belgorod in western Russia's Belgorod Oblast.

They had drilled a hole through the floor to get into the store and were seen emptying cash tills and display cases of jewellery.

Police caught one man who claimed to officers that he was only helping the other man who tricked him by pretending to work at the shop.

The pair had stuffed one million RUB (12,500 GBP) in cash and jewellery worth nine million RUB (112,500 GBP) into plastic bags in the dramatic raid.

Police believe they stayed close to the ground to avoid setting off motion sensors and to avoid being seen through the shop windows.

However, they still managed to activate one alarm and police arrived just as they were trying to make their escape through the basement.

One man successfully escaped but police caught and arrested a 25-year-old man from the city of Kursk, in the neighbouring Kursk Oblast region.

The arrested man denied robbery charges and claimed that he was only helping the other man who told him he worked in the store.

He reportedly said: "I was helping a worker, there was already a hole drilled in the floor. He gave me some bags from upstairs, I did not know what was inside. He offered me 20,000 RUB (250 GBP) for my help."

Cops are not entirely convinced by the man's story and he faces up to 10 years in jail if he is charged and convicted of robbery.

The police investigation continues.
