SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Police are asking for the public's help to track down a pair of jewelry thieves who took more than $20,000 worth of rings from a gallery in downtown Scottsdale.

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on Dec. 22, a man and a woman went into the Sunrise Gallery near Fifth Avenue and Marshall Way and asked if they could look at some rings, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

The woman said she liked a particular ring and the man asked to have it put on hold.

According to police, both suspects left the store then the man returned about 20 minutes later and asked the employee for the ring that he had put on hold.

When the employee went to the back of the store to get the ring, the man reached over the counter into the display case and grabbed a tray of rings.

The suspect ran out of the store with the rings, which were described as yellow gold and valued at more than $20,000.

On Monday, Silent Witness released surveillance photos of the suspects.

There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or the Scottsdale Police Department at 480-312-5000.
