On 3/5/23, at approximately 1:30 p.m., a male subject entered a jewelry store and asked for help looking at diamond rings. He spent some time in the store and the sales associate showed him several pieces. During the presentation, pads of rings were placed on the counter for the subject to view. While the sales associate was distracted, the subject was able to remove the two rings, concealed them in his palm, and then placed them into his pocket. He left without purchasing any jewelry. The theft was not discovered until counts were completed on March 6th. The store’s security video was then observed to confirm the theft.

Subject Description: Black male, approximately 40 years old. 5’7” to 5’8” with a stocky build, possibly with white facial hair/goatee. He was last seen wearing a gray ball cap, gray shirt, and darker gray pants. He also wore a very distinct and heavy chevron-shaped diamond necklace.
