Hawai‘i Island police are requesting the public’s assistance in locating a piece of men‘s jewelry stolen from a Hilo department store during the weekend. The ring is valued at about $3,400.

At 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 22, store employees reported that a woman grabbed a gold-colored ring studded with rows of clear and dark-colored stones and ran out of the store, heading ​westbound on Puainako Street.

The female suspect is described as local with a stocky build, 5 feet tall, with short hair. She was wearing a camouflage-patterned fanny pack at the time of the incident.

Police ask anyone with information regarding the identity of the woman or location of the ring to call the police department’s nonemergency line at 808-935-3311 or contact Officer Joshua Rodby-Tomas of Hilo Patrol via email at [email protected].

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 808-961-8300 and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1000.
