Nassau County police are investigating the theft of $20,000 in jewelry Friday from a store in the Roosevelt Field mall.

Employees at Markens Jewelers, located at 630 Old Country Rd. in Garden City, were in the process of making a sale on Friday at 9:19 p.m. when a man grabbed a ring and earrings from a sales representative and ran away, police said Sunday night in a news release.

The suspect is described as about 6 feet tall and weighing about 190 pounds, the release said. He was wearing a green knit hat, blue jeans and a black and white jacket. A surveillance camera in the jewelry store filmed the theft.
