He was casual and calm as he looked at multiple pieces.

Then without warning, he took $10,000 worth of men and women’s jewels and casually walked off.

The store manager gave chase, and the jewel thief calmly advised her to stay back.

“Like he is a pro. Casual when he does it. He is not nervous. Probably not his first store,” explained Detective Josh Ethridge with the Dickson Police Department.

Nervous store employees made the call to 911.

Dickson police say the bandit could be part of a group that went into Ashcroft & Oak Jewelers in the Rivergate Mall in October and calmly took $12,000 in gems.

Anyone with information on the crimes should contact Dickson police at 615-446-5403.
