CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Clarksville police are searching for the man who asked to look at a diamond ring before switching it with a ring valued at only $10.

It happened at the Walmart store located in the 2300 block of Madison Street last Thursday evening.

While the store associate was occupied getting out a second piece of jewelry for the unidentified man, he reportedly switched a ring valued at nearly $1,500 with a ring worth only $10.

The suspect left the store after telling the employee he needed time to think about the purchase.

Police said the same man has committed similar crimes in Smyrna.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 931-648-0656 Ext. 5298 or Crime Stoppers at 931-645-TIPS.
