A Westside pawn shop wants your help to find the woman who stole over $3,000 in jewelry by stuffing it in her bra and walking out of the store.
It happened around 3 p.m. Tuesday (April 5th) at Jax Jewelry & Pawn on 5211 Blanding Boulevard.
Owner Philip Frey provided security video exclusive to WOKV showing 2 black women entering the store and having a sales representative pull jewelry out from glass cases so they could handle the merchandise. That video is posted above this paragraph.
Frey says he reached out to WOKV because JSO hasn't had any luck finding the women and he hopes to warn other retailers about these women before they strike somewhere else.
"We have not seen this where thieves have actually dropped it down the blouse," Frey added. "It was rather interesting to watch."
One of those women - described in the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office incident report as in her early to mid 30's and wearing a white shirt with black letters in the front saying "It Was All A Dream" - is seen in the video slipping jewelry pieces down her shirt with her right hand as the other woman distracts the employee by talking to him.
The report notes that the woman who took the jewelry stands around 5'9, weighs around 250 pounds and has long curly black hair.
No actual description was provided by JSO for the other woman, but she appears in the video to be thinner, smaller and older than the woman who took the jewelry. She was wearing a two-tone plaid button-down shirt.
Frey says the women took 6 yellow gold pieces valued in total at around $3,600, including a figaro pendant, 2 rope chain necklaces, a figaro chain, a figaro necklace and another gold chain.
The employee got suspicious when one of the women tried to pay for some jewelry with a check around 30 minutes after they had come in and then left the store by backing the dark-colored vehicle they came in out of the parking lot.
Frey thinks there was a third person behind the wheel of that vehicle while the women were in the store and that the vehicle was backed out of the parking lot so that the security camera couldn't get a shot of the license plate.
Anyone with information on these women can reach out to Frey or to JSO.
