Police in Klamath Falls have released surveillance video of a jewelry store robbery...and it's hoped that the video will help to identify a suspect.
The first clip shows a suspect casing Main Street Jewelers shortly before eight Sunday evening.
The suspect returns a short time later, and uses a brick to smash open the glass door.
"An unknown subject, appears to be a white male, younger - forced entry through the front door of Main Street Jewelers." Stated Detective Jack Daniel of the Klamath Falls Police Department.
Detective Daniel isn't saying just how much merchandise was taken...
"We're not going to release that at this time. However, it was a substantial quantity of jewelry."
Store management has been instructed not to talk to the media while the investigation is underway.
Most of the items stolen were reportedly rings set with precious stones.
"We anticipate that the jewelry is going to hit the streets." Cautions Detective Daniel. "And if it's a deal that's too good to be true, then it's probably too good to be true."
For now, police are hoping that someone will recognize the suspect from the surveillance video...before the robber has a chance to strike again.
"We feel that the suspect probably lives in the downtown area." Noted Daniel. "And is probably somebody that is frequently seen downtown."
Tips can be made anonymously by calling (541) 883-5334.
Police are also looking for any witnesses that may have spotted the suspect on Main Street at around 8:pm Sunday.
The business was closed at the time of the break-in.
