Paris police are searching for a man they say walked into a jewelry store and stole a $3,000 bracelet Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say the suspect is a heavy black man, about 6 foot 1, between the ages of 50 and 60. A Carriage House Sales Associate says there was nothing strange about the man when he walked into the store shortly before noon. “He was real friendly,”she said. “He walked in, started a conversation, said his wife had cancer, just wanted to buy something nice for her. The sales associate said she began, “showing him some of the nicer things like the diamonds and gold.” Soon after that, he glanced at the surveillance camera, took out his phone to talk, then told her he had to leave. “I noticed he still had one bracelet and so he handed it to me and said, ‘Well I wasn’t going to steal it.’ And it was just kinda funny because I never accused him of trying to steal it, so it just triggered me to maybe follow him,” she said. After he left through the front entrance, she rushed to the front of the store to collect his license plate information. She said he took off in a light green Chrysler 200.

If you have information that assists in apprehending this person or if you know who this person is, contact Lamar County Crime Stoppers and you could be eligible for  a CASH reward of up to $1,000.
