Detectives searching for woman who stole $22,000 ring from Osceola jewelry store

Osceola County detectives are asking for the public’s help to find a grand theft suspect who stole a $22,000 ring from a local jewelry store last week.

On Nov. 7 at about 8 p.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Kay Jewelers at 3216 N. John Young Parkway to investigate a grand theft. Deputies learned that a black female entered the business and requested to see engagement rings. A Kay employee led her to the display case and pointed out several options. The suspect sat down and asked to see a 3.61-carat ring that was on display. She then grabbed the ring, which is valued at $22,299, and sprinted out of the store to the parking lot, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.  

The black female suspect is approximately 25 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall, 135 pounds, with brown hair. She was wearing a blue jean jacket, floral shirt, red pants and red sneakers.

Detectives are asking for help identifying the suspect. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at 407-348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477, where information leading to a felony arrest may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
