Crime Stoppers and Houston police investigators need your help to find a suspect or suspects behind thefts at two different jewelry stores. Back on February 18, investigators say a man entered the Gordon's jewelry store in Baybrook Mall and acted as if he was interested in buying a ring. An employee got the ring out of the display case, and the suspect reportedly grabbed it and ran off.

He was later seen getting into a white car, possibly a Dodge Stratus.

The suspect in this case is described as a 22 to 28 year old black male with a medium complexion and a goatee. He is around 6' to 6'1" tall and weighs between 200-230 pounds.

Then on March 3, a man entered the Gordon's in Almeda Mall and, according to investigators, also asked to see a ring. Again, an employee showed the man a ring. And again, the suspect grabbed the ring and took off. He was seen getting into a white car that was described as a Pontiac.

This suspect was described as a 33 to 35 year old black male with a medium complexion. He is around 6' to 6'2" tall and weighs between 160 to 180 pounds.
