Thieves steal $7,000 worth of jewelry from Pandora store in Fayette mall

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) He saw a chance and took it.

That’s how Lexington police are describing the thief who snatched the Pandora jewelry store inside Fayette Mall for nearly $7,000. And, he was not alone.

Lexington police say the two men likely came to buy jewelry, but found it easier to steal. “The gentleman saw and kind of did a double take when he saw the charms sitting down,” Detective Anthony Delimpo said.

A crime of opportunity police said when a store worker stopped mid-task to help another customer.

Police say the video shows the thief did not go looking for a handful of Pandora charms, but multiple times.


“He looks around then takes some, looks around again and takes some more,” Delimpo said. “Look around and take an extra amount. About 100 charms were taken so it was definitely a crime of opportunity and I think they are local or live in the general area of ​​central Kentucky.
