Joe Boulos, owner of the Pawn Just Jewelry pawn shop on Cedar Street, says the robbery happened around 3 p.m. on Tuesday. He says two men came in and asked to look at rings. The thief came in shortly afterward, wearing a shirt that said "security." Surveillance video shows him with another man who acted with the two others already in the store in distracting the owner while the suspect stole from the jewelry cases.

He says the suspect stole three diamond rings and five pairs of diamond earrings, valued at approximately $2,200.

Boulos says the suspects appeared to be unaware of multiple surveillance cameras in the store. He says he's willing to offer a reward of up to $100 per criminal for information leading to the suspects' arrest.
