March 9, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
The Santa Ana Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect that stole a diamond ring set.

Last Friday, the suspect entered the jewelry section of the Macy's store inside the Main Place Mall and asked the sales associate to show him a ring. The sales associate handed the ring to the suspect, who then ran out of the store with it. The ring was a diamond bridal set, valued at almost $7,700.

The suspect was described as a male Hispanic in his late 20s to early 30s. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, white T-shirt with an unknown design on the front, blue jeans and white athletic shoes.

Anyone having information regarding the identity of this suspect was asked to call Santa Ana police at (714) 245-8439.
