Police Seek Help Identifying Jewelry Theft Suspect

Diamond and platinum ring valued at more than $25,000 went missing from King's Jewelry on July 24.

The Alexandria Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a theft last month from  in Old Town.

At 3:20 p.m. on July 24, a suspect described as a bald, black male in his 40s standing between 5-foot-10 and 6-1 and weighing approximately 185 pounds entered the business located at 609 King Street. The suspect asked to look at diamond rings and took a platinum and diamond ring valued at more than $25,000.   

The suspect had a mustache and was wearing wire-rimmed glasses, an off-white long-sleeve polo shirt, blue jeans and black and brown boots.

The suspect also had a tattoo on the left side of his neck that included the words “Sigma Forever” and possibly another word, according to police. He was wearing a wedding band police describe as “unique” with white gold that crisscrossed at the top of the ring where there were three diamonds in a row.

Anyone with information about this case, who recognizes the suspect or has information about the stolen ring or its whereabouts may call Detective Julie Goble at 703-746-6804. Callers may remain anonymous.

Well, at least the thief has good taste. The ring is very nice. I'd hate to be that guy when the woman he gave it to has to give it to the evidence room.

I wonder which salesmen he duped. I guarantee it wasn't Brad.

Wow....how did he manage to do this? Just slip it into his pocket or something? Not great for King's Jewelry.

How awful for Brad and his family. Det. Goble is incredibly talented at her work. I am confident that she will bring this to a close.
