On 6/9/23 at 5:300 p.m., an unidentified male subject approached a jewelry kiosk. The team leader greeted him but he did not respond. The Team Leader went to lunch and upon her return, the subject approached the kiosk again asking for help. The team leader assisted him by showing him the necklace he originally asked for. She mentioned that it might be long for him, so she suggested another. He started shaking and stuttering. He said he would take the one she recommended. He then asked to see diamonds.

The subject asked to see the chain and diamond earrings together and the team leader declined as she was starting to get suspicious of him because he never made eye contact during the entire transaction. The subject demanded that she show both pieces together, and again, she declined. He then asked to see the necklace by itself which he was allowed to do, and once he had it in his possession, he ran off with the necklace.
