Holiday shopper swipes $8K ring from clearance display at north side Macy's

Suspect had name "Courtney" tattooed on neck

INDIANAPOLIS - Police are hoping surveillance video will help them track down a thief who made off with a high-dollar ring as holiday sales staff was distracted on the north side of Indianapolis.

Metro police were called to the Macy’s on 62nd Street and Keystone, where sales staff reported that a man in his 20s was perusing three different jewelry display counters, before finally focusing in on the clearance display.

The man told a sales clerk that he’d like to see one ring in particular. It’s described as a ladies white gold ring with a 3-carat diamond, surrounded by four smaller diamonds.

The clerk told police the man quickly bolted out of the store when she turned away.

He is described as a white male in his early 20s with a pierced eyebrow. The clerk told police he also had a tattoo of the name “Courtney” etched across his neck.

Macy’s corporate office did not respond to a request for comment.

Metro police declined to answer questions about the case or release the surveillance video that captured the entire heist.

In addition to the surveillance video, the police report points out that one Macy’s employee also had a picture of the ring stored on a cell phone camera. That picture was in the process of being turned over to police, according to the official report.
