Salem police ID man in 2-year-old jewelry theft, look to solve another
SALEM - Police say they have solved a two-year-old jewelry theft from Daher Jewelers, but now they are looking for another man who made off with two gold bracelets worth $10,000 from Macy's on Monday.
Investigators have an arrest warrant for Dennis James Young, 52, last known address in Rochester, N.Y., on a theft charge. The warrant was obtained after detectives put a video of the March 20, 2010, Daher Jewelers theft on the Jewelers Security Alliance website and other detective information-sharing networks in an attempt to solve the crime.
Police say Young made off with a $7,000, 2-carat diamond ring from Daher Jewelers, 380 Broadway. Young, described as a heavyset black, bald man about 6 feet tall, in his late 40s or early 50s, was recorded leaning over the jewelry counter and stealing the diamond, according to police.
On May 1, Salem detectives were contacted by investigators in Camden, S.C., Florence, S.C., and the sheriff's office in Onodaga County, N.Y., regarding similar thefts involving the same man.
Young was arrested in Camden and Florence on theft charges in the fall of 2011 and released on bond, but he failed to appear at a scheduled court hearing.
The second theft happened about 2 p.m. on Monday at Macy's at the Mall at Rockingham Park.
Police said a tall, thin man in his late 20s asked a clerk to show him a man's bracelet. The first two he was shown were gold-plated but, after questioning whether they were solid or gold-plated, the clerk showed him two others that were gold — one in yellow gold with diamonds and the second a plain yellow gold bracelet.
When the clerk leaned over into the jewelry cabinet, the man took the bracelets and ran. The clerk chased him into the parking lot where the thief got into a light-colored gray, green or silver, newer model minivan with New Hampshire Purple Heart license plates.
The gold and diamond bracelet is valued at $8,800, while the plain gold bracelet is worth $1,000.
The thief is described as in his late 20s, with brown hair, about 5-foot-10 and weighing 130 pounds. He was wearing a baseball hat, jeans and a dark jacket.
