$30K in rings stolen from Wheatfield store

The owner of an antique jewelry store on Shawnee Road reported that $30,000 in rings were stolen from a display case by a man and woman team Friday afternoon.

The owner said a man came into the store about 3 p.m. and asked about a ring in a showcase near the front door. The man then asked to see some necklaces in the back of the store. The owner said she locked up the showcase and put the key in a drawer. She also said she noticed two or three women and a child enter the store.

After looking at a few necklaces, the man decided on one and when the owner started to wrap it up, he said he had to run outside for a minute to check with his wife.

After he didn't return, the owner noticed an antique box inside the ring showcase was missing. She said it contained 11 rings worth about $30,000. 

She said the man left with another woman in a dark blue SUV with only a back license plate.

The man was described as Latino, about 6 feet tall with light brown eyes and a cross tattoo on the inside of one of his wrists.

An investigation is continuing.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
