On 5/9/18, at approximately 9:00 p.m., a subject entered a jewelry store and asked to see gold chains. The sales associate remembered the subject from a prior visit to the store. After looking at chains the subject fled from the store with one of the chains. As he ran from the store he yelled “Boot Gang!” This phrase has reportedly been yelled by thieves stealing on social media. The subject was described as a 19-year-old Black male. He is 5’8” and weighs 125 lbs. He was last seen wearing a purple bandanna and a purple button down shirt with jeans and a baseball cap.
