$17k worth of jewelry stolen from 2 Albuquerque JCPenney stores

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police are looking for the thieves responsible for stealing more than $17,000 worth of jewelry from two different JCPenney’s in Albuquerque in the past two weeks.

A week-and-a-half ago, two men stole a diamond ring worth $5,500 from a JCPenney on the west side.

They struck again on Sunday, this time at the JCPenney at the Coronado Center. As you can see in this video, three men are checking out the jewelry displays. According to police, one of the men returned an hour later and stole three sets of earrings.

“We believe it’s three sets of diamond earrings valued at $12,000. You can see him grab those and he immediately rushes out of the store,” said Officer Simon Drobik, Albuquerque Police Dept.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying these suspects. If you have any information, call APD.
