Diamond thief flees jewelry store in Southpark Mall

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Surveillance cameras captured images of a man this past weekend who stole a diamond from Reeds Jewelers in Southpark Mall.

Crime Solvers says the man entered the store on Saturday and spoke with a salesperson about the diamond selection.

"While the salesperson was holding a 2.07-carat brilliant round cut diamond, the man ripped the item from the salesperson's hand and ran away from the business," Crime Solvers said on its website.

The man is a slender black male who was wearing a blue sweat suit and dark hat.

Anyone with information about the incident can call Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
