HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

The Huntersville Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a man they say stole from a local jewelry store.

On Friday, February 8, at 12:20 p.m., officers were called to Studio 101 Jewelry on South Old Statesville Road in reference to a felony larceny.

Once on scene, they spoke with a person who told them that an unknown black male entered the business asking about a men's and women's matching wedding ring set. The complainant placed the ring set on the top of the counter and turned around to reach for another piece of jewelry, the report states.

The man then grabbed the wedding ring set, which consisted of four rings and left the business on foot. The wedding rings are valued at $1,500.

The complainant described the suspect as a black male, in his 20's, 6'0" and weighing around 170 lbs. He had collar-length black hair with corn rows and a goatee, and was wearing a green army jacket and white polo shirt.

During the course of this investigation, the Huntersville Police Department obtained the attached photographs of the suspect through surveillance footage.

The Huntersville Police Department is asking that citizens review the suspect's photographs, and if they recognize the individual to please contact the Huntersville Police Department.

Anyone with information concerning this crime, or anyone requesting more information, should contact Lieutenant Kevin Johnston at 704-464-5400.
