UPDATE: Action News went inside the home at the center of a SWAT standoff Thursday.  Thelma Jackson said her nephews were barricaded for hours before surrendering to police. 

"They had got them already," said Jackson. "Why did you have to destroy my house like this?"

Police said the armed robbery occurred at a pawn store.

The men allegedly entered with masks and ordered everyone to the ground.  They broke the glass display cases and made off with various pieces of jewelry, said investigators.  

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police department identifies the men as:  Courtney Jackson, Miles Martinez, Marquez Anderson, Kaysean Manor, and Daysean Jenkins.  They are facing several counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a firearm, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a deadly weapon. 

Jackson said the suspect's do not live at her home.  She was one of the people standing outside for hours as the tense scene played out.  

"This is ridiculous, I don't even know where to start," said Jackson.  

When Jackson was allowed back inside her home, she found the back door broken and the window shattered.  Jackson, who has breast cancer, said she doesn't know how she's going to pick up the pieces. 

"My medication, I don't know where it is," she said.

Relatives expressed relief that the men were not injured in the standoff.
