PLAINFIELD, Ind. — The Plainfield Police Department is asking the public’s help in identifying a suspected jewelry thief.
Police say they received a theft report Saturday from Mason Jewelry on 1822 E. Main Street in Plainfield.
The report claimed that at 3:09 p.m. and 3:16 p.m. March 6, two high-value rings were stolen from the store’s display case. The two rings are said to have a combine value of roughly $9,000.

After taking the rings, the suspect left the store, where a second unknown black male was waiting. Both men left the area in an unknown direction.
