Zales theft

A surveillance image from the Zales in the Killeen Mall shows one of the suspects in Wednesday's theft at the store.

The Killeen Police Department released information Thursday afternoon about the theft reported Wednesday at Zales Jewelry in the Killeen Mall.

According to a press release issued by Ofelia Miramontez, KPD spokeswoman, officers arriving on the scene were told two black males had entered the store, requesting to look at a ring. While the Zales consultant showed the ring to one of the men, both suspects ran from the store with the ring, valued at over $20,000.

The first suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, with a small afro and brown eyes, wearing a black and yellow jogging suit with a jaguar/lion logo on the front and back, police said.

The second suspect is described as in his 20s, with short black hair and brown eyes. He wore blue jeans, white shoes, a white tank top, and a blue jean jacket with “Nicki Minaj” on the back.

The suspects may have been driving a white sedan, Miramontez said.
