Police seek robber who stole $30,000 in gold necklaces
Tigard Police detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a robbery suspect.
Just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday, a man came up to the jewelry counter in Macy's department store at the Washington Square Mall, smashed a glass case and ran off with more than two dozen gold necklaces. The combined value of the stolen jewelry is estimated at more than $30,000, according to a news release from the Tigard Police Department.
A jewelry counter employee described the man as approximately 6 feet tall, with an average build and blonde hair. He was wearing a black sweatshirt, a baseball hat and a black mask with white writing on it.
An employee followed the man as he ran out of the store and toward a parking structure. However, the employ stopped chasing the suspect after he told her he had a friend in the car with a gun.
