Background on theft:
On 12-22-10, approx. 1800 hours, the subjects entered the Sunrise Gallery and acted like they were shopping for a ring. They asked the employee to put a ring on hold for them. Then they left and stood out front of the store. The male suspect then came back into the store, a few minutes later, and looked at more jewelry. He then asked the employee for the ring that he put on hold. When the employee was in the back of the store getting the ring, the suspect reached into the display case and removed a tray full of gold rings and ran out of the store. Total value of loss estimated by the store owner to be $20,000.
