Central Ohio Crime Stoppers announced on Sunday that up to a $2,000 reward is being offered for information about a  Dublin jewelry store theft where suspects shoplifted $25,000 in diamonds.

The Oct. 5 incident took place at Diamonds Forever on Tuttle Crossing Boulevard, where a male entered the store at about 10:20 a.m. and asked questions about jewelry in a display case at the rear end of the store, according to crime stoppers.

A male and a female entered the store, and the first customer walked away from the open case with the clerk following him to answer questions.

The male and female went to the counter just viewed by the first customer, and when the clerk started to walk over to them, the first customer called her back with more questions.

With the clerk at the other end of the store attending to the customers, the male and female began removing the unlocked and unattended jewelry from the open case, placing it in a bag and then exiting the store, according to Crime Stoppers.

The original customer, considered a possible suspect, left the store soon after without buying anything.

The suspects are described as a bald, muscular 6 foot 2 inch, 265 pound black male in his late 40s and a white 5 foot 5 inch, 150 pound female in her late 30s with long, straight blond hair.

The possible suspect is described as a black, balding male in his late 40s.

Crime Stoppers is rewarding up to $2,000 to anyone who comes forward with information by Feb. 27 that leads to the arrest or indictment of the persons responsible for this crime.
