A Caper That's Genius for Its Simplicity

Jewel thieves tend to over-think the heist, often with disastrous results -- as you might remember from Before the Devil Knows Your Dead.

A thief who hit Galleria Mall yesterday did not make this mistake. He simply walked into Zales and... let's let the Fort Lauderdale Police Department take it from there:

The suspect asked the store representative to look at a two carat diamond ring. As the salesperson was retrieving the ring from the jewelry case, the suspect sat down in a chair. Upon being handed the diamond, the suspect took off running in an unknown direction. The ring is valued at approximately $20,000.00.

The suspect has been described as a black male, 22-26 years of age, and approximately 5'11" to 6'1". The suspect was last seen wearing a polo shirt.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or who may have witnessed the incident is encouraged to contact Detective Richard Rivera at 954-828-6355 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
