The Sacramento Police Department is seeking the community's help to identify a jewelry thief.

On June 28, 2011, at 11:45 a.m., the man entered the department store in the 400 block of K Street and approached the jewelry section. He requested to see one of the men's rings on display. He placed the ring on his finger and ran out of the store.
