On 3/14/23, at approximately 4:30 pm two male subjects entered a jewelry store. They shopped for several items ultimately settling on 9 different items. The items were rung up and placed in one box per the subjects’ request. Subject 1 produced a large amount of cash and handed it over. It was counted and determined to be short. As the cash was being counted, the subject took the box to show the items to his friend. When he was confronted with the short cash, he handed the box back and the cash was returned to him to be recounted. In this process, he then purchased a single item for $525. Which he paid in cash. He indicated that he would return later with the correct amount of cash to finish the purchase of the other items. At the end of the shift, the drawer was counted to be $300 short. Counts on the cases at the end of the day indicated that items were missing and determined to be those in the box that were not purchased. When the box was opened to add those items back to the count, it was discovered that four were missing.
