Thieves walked into a Wichita store empty handed but left thousands of dollars richer after stealing two diamond rings. The crime was all caught on camera.
Shortly before 1 p.m. on March 20, a man and woman were seen loitering in front of an entrance to Dillard's at Towne East Square. The man entered the store alone at 12:45 p.m. and was seen in front of a counter where two diamond rings were lying. Two minutes after he left, the woman approached the counter and took the rings. The couple is seen on tape walking into the mall shortly afterwards.
One ring is white gold with diamonds. The other is yellow gold with diamonds. They are valued at more than $5,000.
