Robber snatches engagement ring from Carlsbad store

A tall, thin man in dress clothes snatched a diamond engagement ring from an employee’s hand and escaped from Zales Outlet jewelry store Wednesday.

The robber walked into store at the at the Premium Outlet Mall, 5600 Paseo del Norte, about 5:30 p.m. and asked to look at engagement rings, police Lt. Paul Mendes said. When an employee showed the man an emerald-cut diamond ring, the man grabbed it and ran.

The employee chased the robber but eluded him, Mendes said.

The thief was described as in his early 20s, 6 feet 5 inches tall, thin, wearing a white, button-down shirt, dark vest, dark dress pants and shoes. A witness reported a man of similar description driving from the mall parking lot in a silver compact car, heading north on Car Country Drive.
