Police are looking for a man who allegedly stole $22,000 worth of diamonds from Carroll’s Jewelers last Friday.
The alleged robbery in Doylestown was caught on camera.
Police said the man asked to see specific diamonds before grabbing the jewelry and running out of the store, CBS3 reported.
Investigators said the suspect was between 5ft, 10in and 6ft tall. He was last seen driving a dark blue Hyundai Santa Fe.
The theft occurred around 6:53 p.m. on Friday, November 12 at Carroll’s Jewelers. He took two loose diamonds and an engagement setting.
“Before anyone even realized what happened, it was over,” Rob Schnell, the director of Carroll’s Jewelers, told 6ABC.
One of the employees told police that after viewing the surveillance footage, they realized the man was also in the store a few days before the robbery.
“We realized he’s been in multiple times and probably looking for the best way to start and the best way out,” Schnell said.
Carroll’s Jewelers has been in the Doylestown community for over 50 years. Employees said the suspect was the last person in the store for the day and insurance would likely cover the loss.
“No one was hurt. That’s the most important thing. There was no weapon in anyone’s face, there was no threat. It was literally a grab and run “Schnell said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Paul Kreuter at 215-345-4143.
