Suspect flees jewelry store wearing stolen gold chain

- A man trying on a gold chain in a Florida jewelry store ended up running out the door with it, deputies said.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance video showing the suspect at Nina’s Jewelry in Tamarac. The suspect is seen placing the chain around his own neck while observing himself in a mirror. Two employees were standing behind the counter when he ran out of the store and knocked over the owner, Prem Mirpuri.

“The gentleman came in to look at some jewelry pieces and he kind of decided on what he wanted and he just made a run for it,” said Mirpuri.

He added he is a little bruised but was trying to be "heroic" and stop the suspect.

Deputies said the suspect is 6 feet tall and has a long beard. They ask anyone with information to call the agency at (954) 765-4321.
