Jewelry store thief makes error

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police said someone took off with nearly $100,000 worth of jewelry from a store at the Southern Park Mall, but it turns out the suspect left behind an important clue.

It happened on Tuesday at Jewels and More. Investigators said a man walked into the store, picked out a number of items, and then took out his wallet as if he were going to pay for them.

That’s when police said he put the jewelry on and took off. Investigators have recovered the suspect’s cell phone, but have yet to make an arrest.
