FBI releases photos of San Francisco gold nugget thieves 

The FBI has released photos made from surveillance video of three masked thieves stealing historic gold nuggets on display at a San Francisco bank museum after ramming a stolen SUV through its revolving door.

San Francisco police say the robbers took up to 10 ounces of gold worth roughly $10,000 early Monday.

One of the robbers held a gun to a security guard's head while his accomplices stole the gold nuggets from the Wells Fargo History Museum, the site where the bank launched in 1852. They escaped in a sedan.

The photos released Thursday show the men in ski masks and gloves that obscure their identities. They're seen next to the SUV covered in broken glass and grabbing a display case. Each man is described as about 6 feet tall.
