HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The Crime Stoppers have 250,000 reasons to find an accused thief! If you can spot a jewelry store snatcher, you have the chance to earn a four-figure reward.

Police say a man walked into the Meyer and Lee jewelry store in Huntsville on Oct. 8 and asked to look at engagement rings. When the clerk turned her back, he reached across the counter and grabbed a ring holder which contained 6 rings, worth $250,000!
