On 2/23/20, shortly before 4:00 p.m., a male subject entered a high-end jewelry store disguised as a woman. He asked a sales associate if he could look at a $21,000 necklace. As the sales associate pulled out the piece of jewelry, they noticed the subject was holding two of the storeâ€™s watches. When the associate asked the thief why, the subject pulled out a spray bottle and sprayed an unknown substance in the associateâ€™s direction. The subject grabbed the necklace and then fled from the store.
The subject escaped with over $800,000 worth of jewelry. If you have any information regarding the subject’s identity, please call the Jewelersâ€™ Security Alliance at 212-687-0328.
