A woman walked out of a Harrisburg, Pa., jewelry store with
five necklaces worth $4,520 on Feb. 10.
Lower Paxton Township Police Sgt. Greg Taylor tells JCK that around 2:43 p.m., a woman
entered Mountz Jewelers and asked employees if they purchased custom jewelry.
After an employee told her the store does not buy custom jewelry, the woman was
seen wandering around the store talking on her cell phone.
Taylor says employees later discovered that a display case had
been accessed, discovered five necklaces were missing, and reported to police
around 6:15 p.m.
Surveillance video showed the woman stopping in front of the
display case and placing five necklaces in her purse. “The case must have been
unlocked,” Taylor says. “It appears to be a collection of white gold necklaces,
varying in length were taken.”
The woman left in a black SUV driven by an unknown
associate. According to investigators, the woman dropped her own well-worn
silver bracelet with a heart pendant when she reached behind the counter. The
bracelet is in police custody.
Taylor says a photo of the SUV was captured by surveillance
but license plate numbers were not recovered.
