Jewelry Robbery Nets $20,000 Ring

Baltimore County police are searching for a man accused of stealing a diamond ring valued at $20,000 from a Parkville jewelry store, authorities said yesterday.

At 6 p.m. Jan. 11, a man entered Charles Nusinov & Sons Jewelers in the 8700 block of Satyr Hill Road and asked to view the $20,000 ring, county police said. The man had entered the store the previous day, expressing interest in jewelry, a police report shows.

Soon after the man was handed the ring, police said he fled the store. A video camera caught footage of the suspect prior to the theft. Store officials also said the same man came into the store on Jan. 10.

The stolen ring has an 18-carat yellow gold band with a 2.74 carat round diamond at the center mounting, with multiple diamonds around the band, police said.

The suspect was described as between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 11 inches tall with a thin build and short blond hair. The man wore casual clothes during the theft, police said.

Sydney Nusinov, the store's vice president, said the store would install more security cameras and that future shoppers eyeing high-priced jewelry would have to provide identification.
