Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify a man who allegedly stole jewelry worth thousands of dollars from a TJ Maxx in Westlake Village.

Just after 11 a.m. April 20, a grand theft occurred at the store, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a special bulletin.

A man caught on surveillance video entered the store and approached the jewelry department. He asked the associate to see a pair of earrings values at $7,999.

When the associate removed the earrings from the glass case, the man grabbed them and ran to the exit without making any attempt to pay, officials said.
