On 7/12/21, at approximately 5:30 p.m., a female subject entered a jewelry store and requested to see various rings. After initially requesting to look at bands, the subject stated she was interested in upgrading her current ring. Once the associate brought the subject to the bridal showcase, the subject browsed various solitaires. The associate handed the subject a solitaire ring, at which point the subject asked the associate to check the price on the ring. The subject then handed a different ring back to the associate and stated that she “did not like the style of the head” on the ring. The associate immediately recognized that the pieces had been swapped, and after requesting the original solitaire back from the subject, the subject fled from the store. The subject was also the same person who committed a diamond switch at another jewelry store in Auburn, WA on 7/7/21. She was described as a white female, in her late 20’s or early 30’s. She is approximately 5’3″, heavy set, and was last seen wearing a black/white jacket, and black medical scrubs. The subject also has a bridge-style piercing on her nose.
