JSA: Case-slitting foursome back at it
New York--A crew of four men suspected of slitting open display cases in jewelry stores and running off with the goods have been spotted again, this time near Jefferson City, Mo.
The suspects, described as black men between the ages of 40 and 50, first were reported by the Jewelers’ Security Alliance (JSA) last month after slitting open the silicone seal of a showcase, lifting the glass and removing the jewelry at a retail store in Tulsa, Okla. on Jan. 22.
They made a similar attempt at another Oklahoma jewelry store the same day and also have been spotted at stores in Tennessee and Missouri.
Pictured here are two of the suspects believed to be slitting open jewelry display cases.
They were last seen on Feb. 13 at a retail jewelry chain store 40 miles south of Jefferson City.
JSA President John Kennedy said the crew seems to attempt to move staff around the store, asking to look at bridal goods and then watches, and that jewelers should pay attention to who’s coming in and not let people wander around their stores unmonitored.
If these individuals are spotted at a store or elsewhere please contact JSA at 800-537-0067 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
