According to investigators, the woman entered the store at 3216 N. John Young Parkway about 8 p.m. Thursday and asked to look at rings. An employee started showing her options, which is when the thief asked about a 3.61 carat ring that was on display, the Sheriff’s Office said.
That’s when the woman snatched the ring and sprinted out of the store.
Security cameras recorded the woman taking her five-figure five-finger discount.
The ring was valued at $22,299, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The woman was described as about 25 years old, 5-foot-4 and about 135 pounds with brown hair.
