Authorities hope surveillance video will help catch the lone suspect responsible for a jewelry store heist.

On September 24 at around 10:15am, an unidentified black male entered the jewelry store located on the 22500 block of Tomball Parkway. Investigators say the suspect approached one of the victims at a display case, and drew a gun from his waist.

Threatening the victims with the weapon, the suspect demanded jewelry from the case. The victims complied, and filled a bag the suspect provided with valuables before surrendering it to the suspect.

The suspect left the store and was seen getting into the passenger side of a gold 4-door Saturn. A substantial amount of jewelry was taken during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 30 years of age, standing around 6 foot 2, weighing approximately 180 - 200 lbs. At the time of the offense, the suspect wore a Chicago Bulls baseball cap, a black Chicago Bulls t-shirt, blue jean shorts and black tennis shoes.

The store's surveillance system captured the robbery on video.
