Cops: Man wearing ‘Be A Good Human’ shirt steals $100K of jewelry

They say clothes make the man, but a jewelry store owner in Chamblee might question the accuracy of that phrase.

Authorities are trying to find a man who stole more than $100,000 worth of jewelry from a warehouse while wearing a “Be A Good Human” T-shirt on Good Friday.

The man used a rock to smash through a window and crawl into the Ringcrush manufacturing warehouse Friday, according to Channel 2 Action News.  

“There was glass shattered everywhere. Just a huge mess,” Ringcrush owner Bailey Lehrer told the news station.  

Surveillance footage shows the man going from room to room until finding hundreds of rings, gems and earrings inside one of them. He tried on some of the rings and then loaded them into bags and his pockets, Channel 2 reported. 

Lehrer told Channel 2 the man was inside for a little more than an hour. She said the small business has alarms, but none on the window the thief broke through. 

“He’s going to do this to another small business,” Lehrer said. “This guy ... this is definitely not his first rodeo.”

Chamblee police said they plan to alert pawn shops in the area.
