Brooklyn, NY – May 19, 2024 – The New York Police Department is investigating a grab and run theft that occurred on May 19, 2024, at approximately 3:40 p.m, when a male subject entered the store. The subject was greeted by a sales associate, and looked at ladies rings. The subject then asked to see men’s rings.

The subject was described as a 25-year-old Black male. He has dread locks and a slender build. He was last seen wearing distressed blue jeans and white sneakers.
