Thieves take $7,000 in jewelry from NC store

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Pineville are looking for a man and woman who took nearly $7,000 worth of jewelry from a store.

Authorities say surveillance video shows a woman walking into Carmel Jewelry at Carolina Place Mall Thursday night and talking to a store employee while on her cell phone. A man was also seen in the store with an earpiece in his ear and appeared to be listening to a conversation.

The police report says when an employee walks away to ring up an item, the man runs up and grabs several items out of the jewelry case.

The man and woman ran off. Police on Friday released surveillance video showing the suspects.
