A couple posing as customers entered a Timonium jewelry store, where, while looking at merchandise, made off with several rings costing nearly $46,000, according to Baltimore County police.

The department on Wednesday released pictures of the two suspects from surveillance video from Ricardo's Gems and Jewelry in the 9600 block of Deereco Road.

Police said the couple went into the store Dec. 31 and asked to view some jewelry. While the clerk was helping the woman, the man took several rings from an unlocked display case. Police said they left together.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Ricardo's did not immediately respond to comment Wednesday.
