LISLE – The Naperville Police Department has released footage and stills of three suspects who allegedly stole $180,000 worth of diamonds from Precious Fine Stones on Aug. 26.

The video clip, which can be found by clicking here, shows a woman in jeans, a striped shirt and large sunglasses reaching over the counter, grabbing a black box of diamonds, then moving behind the pillar and putting the diamonds in a purse.

In all, about $180,000 worth of diamonds were stolen from Precious Fine Stones, according to the Naperville Police Department.

The robbery occurred at noon Aug. 26 when three suspects entered the store separately, not indicating that they were together, police said.

Police allege that two of the suspects distracted Precious Fine Stones staff while the first female suspect stole the diamonds, according to Naperville Police Department Sgt. Lou Cammiso.

The male suspect is described as a 20- to 25-year-old Hispanic man standing about 5-foot and weighing about 150 pounds. Both female suspects were described as Hispanic, between the ages of 20 to 25, a little taller than the man and weighing about 130 pounds, Cammiso said.

Naperville Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the three suspects.
