The Alexandria Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a theft last month from in Old Town.
At 3:20 p.m. on July 24, a suspect described as a bald, black male in his 40s standing between 5-foot-10 and 6-1 and weighing approximately 185 pounds entered the business located at 609 King Street. The suspect asked to look at diamond rings and took a platinum and diamond ring valued at more than $25,000.
The suspect had a mustache and was wearing wire-rimmed glasses, an off-white long-sleeve polo shirt, blue jeans and black and brown boots.
The suspect also had a tattoo on the left side of his neck that included the words “Sigma Forever” and possibly another word, according to police. He was wearing a wedding band police describe as “unique” with white gold that crisscrossed at the top of the ring where there were three diamonds in a row.
Anyone with information about this case, who recognizes the suspect or has information about the stolen ring or its whereabouts may call Detective Julie Goble at 703-746-6804. Callers may remain anonymous.
