SLIDELL - The Slidell Police Department is asking the public for help identifying a brazen jewelry thief. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.
The unidentified man walked into RG Jewelers around 4 p.m. on November 7 and sprinted out a short time later with over $10,000 worth of jewelry.
The suspect, who was wearing shorts, a black hooded sweatshirt, and dark-rimmed glasses, spoke to a store clerk for several minutes before making his move.
In surveillance video from the store, the suspect can be seen reaching over a counter, sliding open a display case, and grabbing several pieces of jewelry.
The store clerk was able to knock one item from the brazen thief’s hands, but he quickly doubled back and grabbed it before running from the store.
The suspect drove away in a newer model Chevrolet Colorado, according to the SPD.
