The owners of a Sacramento jewelry store say a woman caught on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry did not act alone. Good Monday afternoon when Shah was working alone. Shah said some of the women distracted him while another woman, pretending to try on a dress, forced her way into a locked room which houses the most expensive gold jewellery. “She opened it with a screwdriver,” Shah said. KCRA 3 shows the woman rummaging through jewelry shelves, even opening them with an object in her hand. She is then seen stuffing the jewelry into a bag. Shah said she got away with around $90,000 worth of jewelry, adding that the theft happened within minutes. “It was a big shock because it’s not a small object,” Shah said. “We will suffer for a long time.” The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office confirmed they are looking into this. Siddiqui said he hopes the women get caught, and in the meantime he wants what happened at Liz Shoes to serve as a warning to other companies. “You have to be very careful, very careful and suspicious of every person you see,” Siddiqui. “Trust no one if you’re in the jewelry business, especially gold and diamond jewelry.” Shah and Siddiqui said they were following their own advice and would install more security systems in their store. They also said they printed flyers with photos of the women who entered the store and distributed them to businesses in the area in the hope that the women would be recognized. Shah and Siddiqui even offer a $2,000 reward.

The owners of a Sacramento jewelry store say a woman caught on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry did not act alone.

Liz Shoes Best & Fitted Outfits owners Arif Shah and Amir Siddiqui said a group of four women entered their store on Arden Way on Monday afternoon while Shah was working alone. Shah said some of the women distracted him while another woman, pretending to try on a dress, forced her way into a locked room which houses the most expensive gold jewellery.

“She has opened [it] with a screwdriver,” Shah said.

Security camera footage shared with KCRA 3 shows the woman rummaging through jewelry shelves, even opening them with an object in her hand. She is then seen stuffing the jewelry into a bag. Shah said she got away with around $90,000 worth of jewelry, adding that the theft happened within minutes.

“It was a big shock because it’s not a small article,” Shah said. “We will suffer for a long time.”

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office confirmed it is looking into the matter. Siddiqui said he hoped the women would be arrested, and in the meantime he wanted what happened at Liz Shoes to serve as a warning to other businesses.

“You have to be very careful, very careful and suspicious of every person you see,” Siddiqui said. “Trust no one if you’re in the jewelry business, especially gold and diamond jewelry.”

Shah and Siddiqui said they were following their own advice and would install more security systems in their store.
