Sunday June 21 at 2:15pm Michaels Jewelers in Westfarms was the victim of a distraction by a couple posing to look at diamond rings. One loose diamond was taken.

Then Sunday at 5:55 pm the Michaels Jewelers store in Trumbull mall was also hit by the same couple- 2 loose diamonds were taken.

M.O: Woman sits at diamond counter looks at number of diamonds male doesn't sit wanders around store keeps coming back to diamond case, then woman has one ring on finger turns to the side to admire ring- near end of case- associate turns sideways to discuss with female, at that point male reaches in other side of case and grabs items.

We have events on DVR this same couple also cased Buckland Hills mall location and we are checking other stores to see if they may have tried other stores.

Be alert- always greet customers- converse with them- always watch suspicious behaviors watch for items on case top- coats hand bags etc.
Lock the case even when showing items.
