Thief Runs Out with 5k Ring

A thief dashes out of a Salina jewelry store with a diamond ring.

Salina Police are reviewing store security footage from Showcase Diamond Jewelers, 2328 Planet Avenue, after a white, male ran out of the business with a 14-carat white gold ring with a solitaire diamond.

Police say the suspect is 40 to 50-years old, about 5-foot 9-inches tall and was wearing a blue cap, blue jeans and a jean jacket.

Lt. Scott Siemsen tells KSAL News that the suspect spent some time at the counter with a salesperson looking at the ring before running out the door with the merchandise.

The diamond ring is valued at $5,000.
