On 11/10/21,  during the 12 o’clock hour, a male subject entered a retail jewelry store and shopped for an engagement ring and a set of 1 1/5 ctw diamond stud earrings.  He said he was “in the doghouse” and needed to make some purchases. Once the associate rung the items up, the man wrote a check for the amount.  The name on the check indicated it was named after a lawn care business and had an Atlanta address.  The man portrayed that he was calling his bank for approval and provided an approval number over his telephone.  The associate knew wiser and the check was declined and refused.  The man then attempted to present a traveler’s check and was refused. It is believed the man is going city to city and state to state attempting check fraud schemes.  He said he had been in Birmingham, AL, and had visited other jewelry stores. The subject has a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a black Nike hoodie with a white Nike logo.
