Police in Frankfort say that a thief stole close to $6,000 worth of jewelry at the Walmart on Ky 127.
They say that the theft happened around 10:00 p.m.
“Whoever was in charge of that area walked away for a short time, and when they returned the guy was behind the case, and the employee confronted him and questioned why he was behind there,” said Major Robert Warfel.
Warfel said that the man never responded, he just left the store. He was caught on surveillance video on his way out.
Major Warfel believes that if the man tries to sell or trades this jewelry, that could help police in Frankfort locate this man.
“Somebody shouldn’t have that amount of jewelry, trying to sell it or trade it,” said Warfel.
Police say they won’t yet rule out an inside job, or the suspect being someone with knowledge of the store, but they do know he is on the loose with a lot of men’s jewelry.
“It’s multiple items that he took. Multiple rings,” said Warfel.
If you know the suspect, or his whereabouts, you’re asked to call the Frankfort Police at (502) 875-8648 to leave an anonymous tip.
