On 12/13/22, at approximately 6:30 p.m., a jewelry store was the victim of a diamond switch. A lone male entered the location and began looking at diamond solitaire earrings. After looking at several, the male asked to see a particular earring. A team member removed the item from the showcase. The team member removed one of the solitaire earrings from the display pad and handed it to the male. Moments later, the male handed the earring back, stating he forgot his identification and was going to get it to apply for credit. As soon as the male exited, the team member realized the male switched the diamond earring with a cubic zirconia earring. The subject was described as a white male. He is 6’0”, and has a medium build. He is in his early-to-mid 30’s, and has dark curly hair. He was last seen wearing tan pants, and a blue/white shirt.
