JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson police are investigating a jewelry heist of an unusual nature.
It happened at Juniker Jewelers in Highland Village near Northside Drive and I-55.
Police say last week a man walked into the store and asked an employee to see their most expensive ring.
A jeweler retrieved a ring and showed it to the man. He examined the gem and then suddenly ran out of the store with the ring.
Sources close to WLBT News say the ring was valued at nearly $250,000 dollars.
The thief was described as a clean-cut, well dressed white male.
Managers at the store declined to talk to us about the theft.
