On 2/23/23, at approximately 5:18 p.m., two male subjects entered a jewelry store and requested to look at merchandise in a specific showcase. They asked to see a specific brand of ring. The team member removed it from the showcase for the presentation. When putting it back in the case, subject 1 reached inside the case and removed a ring from the brand he had asked to see. The subject secured the ring in his pocket, then requested to look at merchandise in a different showcase and left shortly after. The team member suspected the ring was removed from the showcase. The team member reported the incident to the store manager and an NYPD Officer outside of the store. The Police took the report but the suspects had left the mall before they could intervene.
