1. Put all merchandise away in a safe or vault when closed.

2. Damage to a store in a burglary can exceed the value of any low-end merchandise taken that is left out at night. Damage to a store may also result in losses involving business interruption. Put all merchandise away so your store is not targeted.

3. Burglars will sometimes break in and set off alarms and leave the premises to see whether there is police response. If no response, they return, and if there is response, they may wait until police leave and then go in.

The black male suspect pictured above requested to look at gold chains in a mall retail jewelry store, and said he used to have an account at the store but it was closed. The suspect was shown several gold chains and asked to see a bracelet, which he asked the sales associate to put on his wrist.

The suspect then asked to try on the matching chain, and once he had on the chain, the suspect fled with both items. He is described as 6 feet and 4 inches, 200 lbs., with tattoos on both arms, a full beard and mustache, and wearing a gold high-end watch. If you have information, contact JSA at 212-687-0328 or
