Police are searching for the thief who made off with two diamond necklaces worth a total of nearly $100,000 from the Tiffany's store on Fifth Avenue last Friday.
Surveillance video captured the well-dressed suspect, who entered the store at 727 Fifth Ave. at about 3 p.m. on June 7, and asked a worker to see a necklace, according to police. The worker took out two necklaces, and as she went to reach for a calculator, the suspect grabbed them from the counter and ran.
No one was hurt.
The stolen jewelry were a 30-inch diamond necklace worth $68,000 and a 15-inch diamond necklace worth $30,000, according to a police source.
