Police are searching for a man who stole $100,000 worth of jewelry from a store inside the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst last week.

The suspect broke through the locked front door of Zales Jewelry, located at 90-15 Queens Blvd., on Dec. 28 at around 10:15 p.m, according to police. The jewelry store was closed and unoccupied at the time.
