The police are looking to question three men in connection to a series of jewelry thefts that have taken place at Zales Diamonds at Queens Center Mall in recent months.

The first of three incidents took place at about 5:50 pm on Friday, October 21, when an unidentified man entered the 90-15 Queens Blvd store and removed jewelry from the case and left.

Then, just two days later, Zales was targeted again by a man who took a display box containing jewelry and exited the 90-15 Queens Blvd store. That incident took place shortly after 6pm on Sunday, October 23.

The most recent theft took place on Saturday, December 31, at around 6:35 pm, when three men entered Zales and removed jewelry from a locked display shelf by forcing it open. They then fled.

The individuals are described as three male Blacks, in their early 20’s.

Surveillance video and photos of the individuals from the December 31 theft were captured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
