TOWN OF NIAGARA – Town Police report they have obtained a warrant for the arrest of a West Seneca woman who allegedly tried to steal a $9,000 ring from Kay’s Jewelers on Military Road recently.
Police said the woman asked to look at the ring about 8:15 p.m. on June 23 and complied with a request to fill out a form providing personal information. Police said she acted suspiciously while looking at the ring, at one point holding it underneath a table. She finally gave the ring back and told clerks that she needed more time to think over the purchase.
As she went to leave the store, an alert employee noticed the ring she gave back was not the one she was shown. Police said she apparently switched rings under the table, then attempted to make off with the store’s ring. The warrant charges her with third-degree attempted grand larceny.
