BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Boca Raton police detectives are looking for two women responsible for stealing jewelry from two Boca Raton stores.

The first theft happened on Oct. 24, 2016 at Neiman Marcus at 5860 West Glades Rd. After reviewing surveillance video, Neiman Marcus security saw an employee show two women numerous pieces of jewelry.

At one point one woman distracts the employee while another woman takes a Borgioni diamond bracelet and walks out of the store.

The second theft happened on Nov. 26, 2016 at Mayor's Jewelers at 6000 West Glades Rd.


An employee took out a selection of engagement rings to show the two women. One woman tried on one ring, while the other woman looked at the holder containing the other rings.

One suspect said she had to get her husband and both suspects left the store.

The employee then looked closely at the rings and saw one ring had been replaced with a fake diamond ring.

Surveillance video showed the same two suspects as the Neiman Marcus video.

The suspects are both black females, one suspect is between 30- and 40-years-old with short hair.  The second suspect is between 50 and 60 years old, wearing a pink wrap on her head during both thefts.

If you have information on these crimes or recognize the suspects, please call Detective Mitzi Gama at 561-620-6234 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
