Lexington Police have released surveillance video of the man who stole an expensive diamond ring from a Lexington jewelry store.

Police said it happened yesterday afternoon at Diamond Masters on N. Locust Hill Drive.

They said the suspect pretended to be a customer who was shopping for rings. He was in the store for about 30 minutes.

While the owners were distracted cleaning some of the diamond rings they were showing him, officers said the man put one of the rings in his pocket and walked out.

Police said by the time the owners realized what happened about 30 seconds later, the suspect was gone.

If you have any information about this theft, call police.
