GRAB AND RUN – DOWNEY, CA

On 9/9/23, at 10:10 a.m., a retail jewelry store experienced a grab and run theft.  Upon entry into the store, the subject inquired about chains and bracelets.  After viewing and handing back a gold bracelet, the subject then asked to view a Cuban link gold chain.  After the team offered the opportunity to apply for credit, which he accepted, the subject indicated he wanted to try the chain on first.  While he had the chain on, he asked to try on a second chain.  After the sales associate responded that only one chain could be shown at a time and the first one would have to be returned, the subject began to walk off with the chain still on his person. The subject was described as a Hispanic male in his early 20’s. He is 5’4″, and has a thin build.  He was last seen wearing a grey zip-up sweater, jeans, a black hat, and a mask.
