On 1/20/22, at approximately 1:26 p.m., a male subject entered a jewelry store under the pretense of shopping for earrings for his wife.  The subject requested to see the largest carat size without screw backs.  The sales associate presented a set of square ½ carat earrings to the subject during the presentation.  The subject then handed back a round CZ earring along with a square ½ carat earring back to the team member.  As the team member attempted to get the correct ½ carat square earring back, the subject exited the site stating that he was going to check out other jewelry locations. The subject was described as Black, 5’9”, and 160 lbs with a slim build. He is in his mid to late ’60s.  He was last seen wearing a full gray suit with a multi-colored button-up shirt, a dark-colored “newsboy” hat, and a Dior face mask. If you have any information regarding this subject, please contact the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at or 212-687-0328.
